The Golden Jubilee National Hospital is home to one of the largest elective (planned care) orthopaedic centres in Europe.
Our Orthopaedic Department has a multidisciplinary approach to care, with our consultants, nurses, physiotherapists and occupational therapists all working together for one purpose – the benefit of our patients.
Enhanced Recovery After Surgery
Our pioneering Caledonian™ enhanced recovery after surgery programme includes the use of enhanced pain control techniques to allow patients to get back up and walking within hours of surgery, leading to a reduced overall length of stay in hospital.
The current average length of stay is three days following hip replacement and four days after knee replacement (data: 2014).
Normal hours are Monday to Friday, 9am till 5pm
