Orthopaedics and trauma

Orthopaedics is the branch of medicine dealing with the correction of disfigurement in bones and their related muscles

The Northey Suite works in conjunction with the South West London Elective Orthopaedic Centre (SWLEOC) to carry out all related treatment for patients. The SWLEOC is the leading orthopaedic centre in the country and carries out thousands of operations each year.

The centre carried out more than 3,200 joint replacements in 2013/14, and is the largest joint replacement centre in the United Kingdom. Sub-specialities within orthopaedics include shoulder surgery, young adult hip service, and soft tissue, spine, shoulder, foot and ankle procedures. These will of course vary by consultant.

Northey Suite patients will benefit from the experience and facilities of SWLEOC, while recovering in the comfort and cleanliness of our ward, coupled with the individual attention of our nursing team.
