Trauma and orthopaedics

Our highly skilled doctors, nurses, therapists and support staff will take good care of you if you are unfortunate enough to have a fall or accident resulting in broken bones anywhere in the body. We also look after people who need spinal, hip, knee, shoulder, elbow or hand surgery.

Our team of consultants and dedicated staff are here to support you through a wide variety of musculoskeletal (muscle and bone) disorders and injuries. In recent years, the department has made some exciting developments to meet the changing needs of patients.

Our orthopaedic surgeons now hold outpatient clinics in One Life Hartlepool, Lawson Street Health Centre Stockton and Peterlee Community Hospital. This means you can have appointments close to home, making our services more convenient for you.
