Your bones and joints

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 and 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 Manchester Hospital, many of our consultants are leading in their field and use cutting edge technology – including personalised replacement knee joints. Whether you use private medical insurance or you’re paying for treatment yourself, Spire provides expert orthopaedic care for everyone with very little waiting time.

Why choose Spire Manchester Hospital for orthopaedic treatment?

Many of our orthopaedic consultants have national and international reputations in their field of expertise.

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 offering ambient colour-change lighting and your choice of music.

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.

At Spire Manchester Hospital 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.
