Our highly experienced and internationally renowned team comprise three consultants—Alison Hulme, Stephen Ng Man Sun and Stuart Evans—and hand surgeon Mr Max Horwitz.

Alongside our consultants, we have an orthopaedic nurse and advanced practice physiotherapists in paediatric orthopaedics who assist to reduce our consultant waiting lists, lead on monitoring complex cases, elective surgical planning, preoperative assessment and postoperative rehabilitation recommendations and organisation.

As we are a regional centre, we work closely with our community colleagues to provide a seamless service between tertiary and primary settings.
