An ‘Orthopaedic’ evening event is being held at the George Eliot Hospital for local people who have had an orthopaedic related operation or have one planned in the future on Thursday 9June 2016.
Orthopaedic consultants, specialist nurses, anaesthetists and physiotherapists will be on hand to talk to patients who have experienced injuries and conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system (the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves). You may be referred to a trauma and orthopaedic consultant for treatment of an injury such as a bone fracture, or a long-term condition that's developed over many years, such as arthritis.
Specialist topics will include a presentation on hip and knee replacements, shoulder, knee, foot and ankle conditions, fractures and physiotherapy. A specialist anaesthetist will also share their knowledge. Care provided for patients following treatment will also be included in this popular event.
Orthopaedic Consultant, Mr Raj Reddy said: “Our information evening will provide our patients with an opportunity to learn more about their conditions, treatment and physiotherapy available from our excellent team here at the George Eliot.”
“We would encourage anyone that is interested to learn more about their conditions to come along and ask questions to our panel of specialists.”
Presentations will start at 6:30pm and the event will finish by 8:30pm.
Free car parking in the George Eliot Hospital ‘GETEC’ (George Eliot Training Education Centre) will be available. Tea and Coffee will also be available from 6.00pm.
We would like to see as many people as possible at this interesting event. Previous patient events have been popular so please email George Eliot Hospital Fund raising Co-ordinator, Jean Whittaker MBE on 02476 86 5400 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to come along.
