Paediatric trauma and orthopaedic surgery

We offer tertiary service paediatric orthopaedic surgery for the whole of Kent and parts of Sussex.

The highly specialised treatment centre offers all paediatric orthopaedic services – specialist surgical and non-surgical treatment for conditions affecting children.

These include (but are not limited to):

  • fractures
  • club feet
  • limb deformities
  • cerebral palsy
  • dislocated hips in babies
  • other congenital and developmental conditions.

Peripheral clinics are run by the team in Dartford and Hastings and it is hoped they will also soon start in Ashford and Medway.

Our team of expert Paediatric Orthopaedic Consultants includes Mr Marcos Katchburian and Ms Jo Dartnell.


Heidi Furr has been a paediatric occupational therapist for over 20 years, working in the community and in children’s hospitals. Her specialist area is motor disorders, such as cerebral palsy.

She is part of the team developing the Complex Upper Limb Service and part of her role is liaison with community therapists; planning, goal setting and being a source of specialist advice – working collaboratively with the child or young person at the centre of our practice.

Heidi provides specialist assessment through play-based and functional tools, measure outcomes of interventions and guiding future decision making using a coaching approach, to enable the child or young person to be as independent and fulfilled as possible.
