REA Hospital’s Orthopaedics Clinic was established in order to provide specialised care and support for musculoskeletal problems in men and women, consisting of special units dedicated to the main orthopaedics subspecialties.
The Orthopaedics Clinic is staffed by experienced orthopaedic surgeons and operates within REA’s newly established outpatients facilities so as to cover patients’ orthopaedic problems.
Orthopaedics is characterised by a significant degree of specialisation not least due to its wide range of pathologies. More specifically, main subspecialties are traumatology, sports injuries, large joint surgery (hips/knees), upper limb (micro-)surgery, spine surgery, foot surgery, orthopaedic oncology and paediatric orthopaedics. Finally, in recent years the development of regenerative musculoskeletal medicine, using PRP and stem cell technologies, has been significant.
Within REA Hospital, the following special units operate through their respective clinics run by specialised orthopaedic surgeons:
- General orthopaedics clinic
- Spine and scoliosis clinic
- Paediatric orthopaedics clinic
- Upper limb clinic(shoulder, elbow, hand)
- Sports injury / sports medicine and regenerative medicine clinic
