The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Glasgow Royal Infirmary provides the full orthopaedic range of services to the population of North East Glasgow. We also provide specialist care in areas such as complex arthroplasty, complex peri-articular trauma, musculoskeletal oncology and limb reconstruction to a wider population in the West of Scotland.
We have close links to the local universities for both research and teaching. We regularly have undergraduate medical students. There are also students rotating through the department who are studying nursing, physiotherapy and many other associated healthcare professions.
The aim of this website is to provide information about the department and the services we provide. There is information for patients attending appointments or undergoing surgery. There is also information for staff and students.
If you have a concern regarding a musculoskeletal complaint, you should look at resources such as NHSInform, and if necessary consult your GP. We cannot provide direct healthcare advice via the internet or email.
In an emergency, use this link to find your local Glasgow Emergency Department or Minor Injuries Unit.
