    Orthopaedic Surgeons At St Andrew's Hospital

    Consulting orthopaedic surgeons at St Andrew's Hospital specialise in these orthopaedic treatments:


    The elbow in the human body is made up of three bones that join together to form a hinge joint. The upper arm bone or humerus connects from the shoulder to the elbow forming the top of the hinge joint.


    The hand is composed of the 14 phalanges (fingers), the 5 metacarpal bones (middle of the hand), and the 8 carpal bones (wrist bones).


    Osteoarthritis is a condition that affects joints including bone, cartilage, ligaments and muscles. Osteoarthritis can include inflammation of the tissue around the hip joint, damage to joint surface cartilage, bony spurs growing around the edge of the hip joint and/or deterioration of the ligaments and tendons that hold the joint together.


    The shoulder is a complex joint allowing us a great range of movement and flexibility. It is also susceptible to injury due to the delicate construction and balance of bones, ligaments, tendons and muscles making up the joint.


    The spinal column provides both structural and nervous system support for the body. It is categorised into sections: these include the lumbar, thoracic, and cervical spine.


    The lower arm or forearm consists of two bones, the radius and the ulna. These bones connect the wrist to the elbow forming the bottom portion of the hinge joint.
