Trauma & Orthopaedics

Caring for patients with injuries and conditions that affect the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves.

The Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trauma & Orthopaedic Department looks after patients with injuries and conditions that affect the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves.

Each year we carry out around 3,000 emergency operations (Trauma) and 6,300 elective operations at our two surgical trauma units at the Royal Cornwall Hospital and St Michael’s Hospital in Hayle. We offer both inpatient and day case surgery, and have a wide range of outpatient services to support patients throughout the county.

The department is renowned for carrying out a significant amount of cutting­-edge trauma surgery and we have a number of surgeons who are recognised nationally and internationally for their pioneering work in areas such as young adult hip surgery, hand surgery, arthroscopic surgery, complex foot and ankle surgery and knee surgery.

The Department also has two full time regular serving military consultants, one from the Army and one from Royal Navy. They fulfil NHS commitments as well as their military duty at home and abroad.
