More patients with bone and joint disorders are now able to see an expert with the opening of a new specialist orthopaedic surgery centre.
Orthopaedic surgeons from Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells hospitals have combined their skills and expertise to create one of the largest and most advanced elective orthopaedic departments in the South East at the new Tunbridge Wells Hospital.
The move enables more patients in West Kent to be seen and treated by orthopaedic surgeons with a specialist interest and expertise in their condition.
15 orthopaedic consultants lead specialist teams at the centre for the treatment of hip, knee, foot & ankle, shoulder, hand and upper limb conditions.
Patients in the Maidstone area continue to have their orthopaedic outpatient appointments, pre-assessments and day case surgery at Maidstone Hospital.
