Bone & Joint Health
We are the largest and busiest orthopaedic department in the country. Our clinical care is based across three hospitals: The Royal London, Whipps Cross University Hospital and the Barts Health Orthopaedic Centre in Newham.
Our purpose is simple: to improve the health and wellbeing of people with bone & joint disorders and injuries. We focus on conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system. This includes bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves, and tendons.
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.
