Royston Hospital - Orthopaedic Surgery

Private Surgical Service

This is where you will come to have your surgery performed. The visits to your surgeon before and after surgery will be at their consulting rooms.

Hip Arthroscopy

Small incisions (cuts) are made in the hip area and a small telescopic instrument with a tiny camera attached (arthroscope) is inserted. This allows the surgeon to look inside the joint, identify problems and, in some cases, operate. Tiny instruments can be passed through the arthroscope to remove loose, damaged or inflamed tissue.
