Trauma Care

The trauma and orthopaedic department carries out a broad spectrum of surgery including joint replacements for hips, knees, shoulders, elbows and MCP joints.

We also undertake a wide range of arthroscopic surgery. We are the Regional Centre for surgery on soft tissue tumours and work closely with the Christie Hospital and Oswestry Hospital.

The unit has a full time specialist physiotherapy practitioner who provides a specialist rehabilitation programme for hand and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries in conjunction with a part time occupational therapist. This allows us to do rehabilitation at the weekends, reducing average length of stay. The department also benefits from outpatient triage sessions by a specialist team of physiotherapy practitioners.
