St Joseph’s Orthopaedic Centre is fully integrated with our Centre for Advanced Diagnostics and our Centre for Clinical Physiotherapy where our consultants are able to work with our leading specialist physiotherapists to design a programme suited to you personally, using state-of-the-art equipment and our hydrotherapy pool to steer your successful recovery.

All of our orthopaedic procedures are conducted in our two modern laminar flow operating theatres, designed specifically to reduce the risks of infection.  At St Joseph’s we place a very high emphasis on the eradication of infection risk and our statistics are excellent in that regard.

The St Joseph’s Centre of Excellence for Orthopaedic Care also operates a unique partnership with Zimmer-Biomet, the leading manufacturer of state-of-the-art joint implants with a proven track record for quality and longevity which are tailored to the patient’s personal requirements.  An integral part of the partnership enables St Joseph’s Hospital to offer orthopaedic patients the Rapid Recovery Programme developed to specifically produce the best and fastest rehabilitation from surgery.
