Plymouth Paediatric Orthopaedics

Surgeons

We are a multidisciplinary team based at Derriford Hospital. There are three specialist paediatric orthopaedic surgeons, backed up by a team of thirteen adult surgeons who complete the on call team and offer joint specific expertise.

Although based in Plymouth, where all our surgery takes place, we offer out patient clinics in Truro, Bodmin, Newton Abbot and Brixham.

We maintain close working links with other paediatric surgeons in the South West, notably Mr Fern and Mr Parsons in Truro and Mr Cox in Exeter. Patients requiring spinal surgery are referred to the spinal surgery team in Exeter.

At Derriford there is dedicated paediatric rheumatology support from Drs Ohlsson and Robertson, and radiology support from Dr Foster. New born baby ultrasound screening for hip dysplasia is lead by Dr Vaitkute from the neonatal department.

We have strong links with community paediatricians across the Peninsula.
