If your GP feels you may benefit from seeing an orthopaedic surgeon you will be referred into our service for an Orthopaedic Surgery Assessment.
Our very experienced Orthopaedic Physiotherapy Specialists and General Practitioners with a Special Interest in Orthopaedics (GPsI) will make sure you are seen by the most appropriate healthcare professional for your problem.
Some patients may be presenting too early for surgery and would benefit from some advice and reassurance or they may need a course of physiotherapy. This can be arranged at the time of your appointment.
If you are referred on to see an orthopaedic surgeon we can order certain tests such as X-rays and MRI scans if this is needed prior to your hospital appointment.
You can choose which hospital you would like to be seen in and where possible book your appointment to see the surgeon before you leave us.
