Our vision is to become the global leader in bone & joint disorders and injuries.  We recognise the need to bring together all aspects of orthopaedics to ensure that we provide our patients with the best possible care.

A centre for

Pioneering Research

We have a strong track record in leading collaborative clinical research. In 2020 supported by Barts and the London Charity, we welcomed our inaugural academic chair, Professor Xavier Griffin, who is leading our ambitious research programme.

We are the largest and busiest orthopaedic department in the country, seeing over 100,000 patients a year in our clinics and undertaking around 10,000 operations a year. Our clinical care is based across three hospitals: The Royal London Hospital, Whipps Cross University Hospital and the Barts Health Orthopaedic Centre in Newham. We serve a population of over 2.5 million across East London and beyond.

Our hospitals are home to two prestigious training rotations, the Percivall Pott and the Royal London Rotation producing outstanding orthopaedic surgeons. Our clinicians are heavily involved in the delivery of a Masters for Trauma & Orthopaedics that provides students the opportunity to learn from leading clinicians. We have access to a state of the art simulation suite providing trainees the opportunity to hone their surgical skills. Our established fellowship programme provides advanced subspecialty training in a range of clinical areas.
