University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust

Inpatient orthopaedic therapy

Our orthopaedic therapy team works with children on ward G3 and on John Atwell day ward. We see patients who have had surgery, multilevel surgery or broken bones.

We help children to be safety discharged from hospital, and to use equipment to help them at home until they are better. The treatment we offer might include teaching a child to use a walking or transfer aid, exercise programmes, hydrotherapy and gym work.
