Orthopaedics - Glasgow Royal Infirmary

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 (Coronavirus) issues our current hospital services are undergoing a restructuring in order to meet the changing demands on our resources. You may be asked to attend for a video review with our health care providers via our innovative Attend Anywhere video conferencing service or to undergo consultation via telephone.


We cannot provide direct healthcare advice via the internet or email.

If you have a concern regarding a musculoskeletal complaint, you should look at resources such as NHSInform, and if necessary consult your GP.

In an emergency, use this link to find your local Glasgow Emergency Department or Minor Injuries Unit.

The aim of this website is to provide information about the department and the services we provide. There is information for patients attending appointments or undergoing surgery. There is also information for staff and students.

The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Glasgow Royal Infirmary provides the full orthopaedic range of services to the population of North East Glasgow. We also provide specialist care in areas such as complex arthroplasty, complex peri-articular trauma, musculoskeletal oncology and limb reconstruction to a wider population in the West of Scotland. 

We have close links to the local universities for both research and teaching. We regularly have undergraduate medical students. There are also students rotating through the department who are studying nursing, physiotherapy and many other associated healthcare professions.
