Orthopaedics & Trauma

There has been a strong tradition of Orthopaedics in Norwich, with the first ‘Pure’ Orthopaedic Surgeon being appointed to the Hospital in 1935.

Norwich was at the forefront of the development of hip replacement surgery in the 1950s & 60s.

There are now 30 Orthopaedic Consultants in Norwich, providing highly specialist care in areas such as Spine, shoulder, elbow, hand, hip, knee, foot and ankle and paediatric & trauma reconstruction.

As well as being an elective surgery unit we are one of the busiest trauma hospitals in the UK.
