Orthopaedic surgery covers operations of the musculoskeletal system: hips, knees, hands, shoulders, elbows and feet.

Specific orthopaedic surgery procedures at The Foscote Hospital include knee replacements, hip replacements, knee arthroscopy, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction, carpal tunnel release, rotator cuff shoulder surgery, ganglion removal and cartilage repair.

The musculoskeletal system consists of the human skeleton and the joints, ligaments, muscles, tendons and cartilage which support it and enable it to function properly. Orthopaedic surgery helps to repair and restore elements of the musculoskeletal system which may have been damaged through, for example, age-related degeneration, sports and other injuries, disease and accidents and helps to reduce or remove symptoms such as aches and pains, swelling, stiffness, difficulty in moving and restricted movement in certain parts of the body.
