Welcome to NovoOrtho Sub -Specialists

What is an orthopaedic sub - specialist?

 

Orthopaedic sub - specialization refers to when a medical professional in the orthopaedic field becomes an expert in a specific sub-category of this branch of medicine.  

As a group of internationally acclaimed orthopaedic consultants treating adults and paediatrics, NovoOrtho Specialists prides itself on two things: innovation and outstanding care. We understand that undergoing medical treatment can be daunting, which is why our mission is to minimise pain and to get patients back to full fitness as quickly as possible.
With the support of an exceptional multi-disciplinary team, patients are guaranteed a quick diagnosis and a personalised care plan, regardless of whether they’re being treated for a sports injury or their condition is down to wear and tear.
As leaders in their respective fields, our consultants are pioneers and educators. They are key players in training the next generation of orthopaedic experts; and they’ve helped to develop several of today’s revolutionary techniques too. Of course, we’re proud of our global success, but it’s what this means for our patients’ outcomes that really counts.
With access to the world’s most advanced surgical and non-surgical techniques, at NovoOrtho Specialists, we always examine every treatment option. We know that less invasive procedures are highly effective, and can reduce recovery times, which is why we only perform joint replacement surgery as the last – not the first – resort.
