Who we are

We have built on the historical excellence and innovation that brought Liverpool to the forefront of the medical world. We have achieved this by continuing to provide innovation in education, rehabilitation, surgical techniques and implant development. We continue to maintain a reputation for excellence that is recognised throughout the world.

Many of the consultants and rehabilitation staff within the department are recognised across the world for their experience and knowledge. Many are invited nationally and internationally to teach at courses and conferences. The department is involved in the teaching of medical students and surgical trainees. Beyond this we offer fellowships to fully trained surgeons to allow them to develop and take away the specialist skills that we are fortunate to have at the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen Hospitals.

Each consultant surgeon and many other staff focus their expertise into a localised anatomical (part of the body) area. Having such specialist skills means patient care is focused and specialised - allowing better care and treatment. Each patient we see is offered treatment for their condition by a consultant surgeon who is a specialist in that area.
