Orthopaedic - December 2007 saw us convert two of our theatres into the integrated (booms & lights, video routing equipment and endoscopic video systems) “Stryker i-Suites”. This system provides the ability to display devices such as High Definition Cameras, Microscopes, Image Intensifiers and Ultrasounds onto LCD Flat Panel Monitors. The majority of our endoscopic work is carried out in these theatres giving our surgeons the latest technology available.
Our joint replacement surgery is further enhanced by our Rehabilitation Unit. Each program is planned by our multidisplinary team to meet the needs of the individual and supported by our Gym, Treatment Rooms and Hydrotherapy Pool.
