Lower limb

Most of the orthopaedic conditions we treat are due to degeneration of tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints. Some of the conditions we treat are caused by trauma, usually as the result of an accident or a sports injury. Others are caused by cumulative disorders, such as repetitive strain injuries which occur through work or sport. Most of the orthopaedic procedures we provide are supported with physiotherapy and occupational therapy.

Our other area of expertise is in the treatment of legs, in particular conditions that affect hips, knees, ankles and feet. This includes trauma injuries, such as fractures or dislocations causing damage to ligaments, tendons and joints. We also treat age related degenerative conditions that can result in painful arthritis, instability, deformity and nerve compression.
