Description

John Mutu-Grigg is an orthopaedic surgeon who specialises in:
  • hip and knee - diagnosing and treating hip and knee pain and arthritis, with primary total joint replacement and reconstruction.
  • all hand and wrist conditions from acute trauma to degenerative osteo- and rheumatoid arthritis
  • peripheral nerve conditions of the hand, upper and lower limbs.

John believes strongly in the importance of patients being able to make informed decisions about their own healthcare. To assist in this he has included a large amount of information about conditions and treatments on his own website.

What is orthopaedics?
This is an area that deals with conditions of the musculoskeletal system (disorders of bones and joints of the limbs and spine). The speciality covers a range of different types of conditions starting with congenital (conditions which children are born with) through to degenerative (conditions relating to the wearing out of joints). The field of orthopaedics covers trauma where bones are broken or injuries are sustained to limbs.
 
Other conditions that sit under the spectrum of orthopaedics are metabolic conditions, neurological and inflammatory conditions.
