What is orthopaedic surgery?

Orthopaedic surgery, or orthopaedics, is a surgical specialty that deals with trauma (physical injury) and conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system.

The musculoskeletal system includes:

  • Bones
  • Joints
  • Muscles
  • Tendons
  • Nerves

Benefits of orthopaedic surgery can include:

  • Pain relief
  • Improved mobility
  • Functional independence

Common orthopaedic procedures

At the Royal Free Hospital Private Patients Unit, our leading consultants use state-of-the-art treatments such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections and arthroscopy (keyhole surgery) to minimise the need for open surgery. Our specialist clinical team works closely with patients to identify the most effective way to meet their goals for recovery.
