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 no longer enjoy their normal working or social life in the same way as before. Our services are available to everyone – whether you’re insured or paying for yourself. If you are paying for your own treatment, we offer one-off private hospital treatment, with a fixed price agreed in advance. We also offer some services to NHS patients on behalf of the NHS. Spire Leicester Hospital provides expert medical care for everyone - with very little waiting time.


Why choose Spire Leicester for orthopaedic treatment?

Many of our orthopaedic consultants have national and international reputations in their field of expertise and there have been great advances in bone and joint medical practices in recent years.

If you require a scan or x-ray, our diagnostic facilities include a wide-bore MRI scanner, which was selected with patient comfort in mind and if your consultant recommends surgery, you will be treated in a laminar flow operating theatre which provides a constant stream of clean air to help minimise the risk of infection. Our specialist orthopaedic theatre team will support your consultant during your surgery to help look after you and our in-house fully accredited sterile services unit ensures all instrumentation is ready for your procedure.

We’ll see you as an individual and tailor your treatment and rehabilitation around you. We provide information to help you understand your choice of procedures, what they involve and the associated risks and benefits, so you feel in control of your care.
