Orthopaedics Our specialisms

As part of our specialist services we perform all types of standard  orthopaedic surgical procedures. We also, however, provide conservative treatment, i.e. non-surgical treatment for many of  our patients.

This applies to patients with lower back pain (lumbago, lumboiscialgia),neck pain (cervical syndrome) or pain arising from using the joints (osteoarthritis). Many patients who suffer a slipped disc may also be treated without surgery and we have many different infiltration techniques at our disposal for this.

We can also treat children who have disorders affecting the joints by working in collaboration with the paediatricians who work in our hospital. We are of course also happy to treat patients from other departments who also have orthpopaedic conditions.
