At BMI The Park Hospital in Nottingham, we're proud to work with over 20 orthopaedic surgeons to provide a wide range of orthopaedic services, including sports injuries, treatments for ligaments, tendons and muscles, and surgery.
Treatments and surgery are available for all joint types, including hip, knee, shoulder, elbow, wrist, ankle and foot.
Common conditions seen by our Nottingham orthopaedic surgeons at The Park Hospital are:
Osteoarthritis of hip, knee, hand or shoulder
Osteoarthritis causes a joint to become stiff and painful. It may also become swollen, tender or make a grating sound when moving. Joints commonly affected are the hips, knees, hands and shoulders.
Cruciate or ligament injuries of the knee
Cruciate or ligament injuries occur when the knee is twisted or overextended. This can happen as a result of sports activities, particularly football, netball, tennis or skiing. A common injury to this area is anterior cruciate ligament injury, or ACL injury.

Rotator cuff injuries or tears of the shoulder
The rotator cuff is found in the shoulder and keeps the shoulder joint stable. The rotator cuff can become injured and torn through playing sports such as baseball or tennis, or from normal wear and tear through repetitive use of the arm.

Back pain is very common and can occur for a number of reasons. The most common causes of back pain are from heavy lifting, incorrect posture or poor fitness. Ongoing or chronic back pain however, may be down to a musculoskeletal condition. Our orthopaedic consultants can help identify the cause of your pain to determine the best treatment plan for you.
Tendon Problems of Ankle, Knee or Wrist
Issues with tendons in the knee, ankle or wrist may occur because of overuse, repetitive use or sudden injury. Common conditions include tendonitis of the knee, carpal tunnel syndrome and Achilles tendonitis.
Our sports injuries clinic provides services for adults, and children (aged 12 and over). The aim of our sports injuries treatment is to get you back to fitness as soon as possible, and by offering a specific treatment plan for you.
