Is orthopaedic surgery and treatment for you?

Our bones and joints are vital to how we move and every action we make. But conditions such as arthritis and injury can make our bones – particularly the joints – painful and reduce our mobility or dexterity. As a result, some people find they can’t live or enjoy their normal working or social life. There have been great advances in bone and joint medical practices. At Spire, some of our hospitals and consultants are leading the field in the use of cutting edge equipment. Whether you use private medical insurance or you’re paying for treatment yourself, Spire provides expert medical care for everyone with very little waiting time.

Why choose Spire for orthopaedic treatment?

Many of our orthopaedic consultants have national and international reputations at the forefront of research in their fields. Our facilities include some of the latest generation scanners and operating theatres with laminar flow, an essential requirement for orthopaedic surgery to help minimise the risk of infection. We can also offer cutting edge technology or prosthetic implants - such as the Articular cartilage repair (MACI). At Spire we’ll see you as an individual and tailor treatment and ongoing support around you. We provide a range of information to help you understand the choice of procedures, what they involve and the associated risks and benefits, so you feel in control of your care.
