The aim of this website is to provide information about our orthopaedic department and the services we provide. You will find information for patients who will be 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.
