We provide a comprehensive range of musculoskeletal healthcare, from orthopaedic medicine to complex surgery, delivered by some of the UK's top orthopaedic specialist consultants. 

Our consultant-led service is renowned for its innovative approach and pioneering surgery.  Each year we perform over 5,000 orthopaedic surgical procedures for patients from Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and beyond.

As well as using keyhole surgery we deploy the latest computer-navigation techniques to ensure minimum trauma and maximum safety for our patients.  

The Orthopaedics team also forms a key role in delivering the Community Mulsculoskeletal Service.

We are highly competitive on length of patient stay in hospital.  Following GP referral, your treatment will be fully co-ordinated from initial consultation, through diagnosis, treatment, recovery and therapy.
