The Orthopaedic Surgery team at Bon Secours Hospital Dublin includes ten Consultants who provide assessment, intervention and treatment for numerous common and complex musculoskeletal conditions such as ankle, knee and hip replacement as well as shoulder and hand surgery.
The orthopaedic department is at the forefront of modern orthopaedic medicine. Continuous advancements in technology and continued education among the hospital's consultant and nursing teams, ensure that the department staff are leaders in their field.
Pre-operative screening clinics for patients undergoing orthopaedic surgery occurs in a combined clinic with a consultant anaesthetist, joint replacement nurses and an orthopaedic surgeon. Pre-operative classes are held for patients due to undergo major joint replacement surgery. This gives patients an opportunity to understand their journey through the pre-operative stage, their admission to hospital and their post-operative care. Patients are exposed to the aids that would be used to mobilise them post surgery, in advance of attending the hospital for their surgery.
A dedicated orthopaedic ward cares for inpatients recovering from procedures and the surgical day ward cares for day patients.
There is an ethos of focusing on patients and their aftercare and particularly for those who may need more after-care following their procedure.
