About

In this section, you can find the following information:

General & Musculoskeletal Unit

Orthopaedic / general rehabilitation

This team provides inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation for patients following orthopaedic surgery (primarily joint replacements) and fractures.

Therapy programmes are also provided for general surgical and medical patients who do not meet the admission criteria for RTRC's other services, for example:

  •      following heart attack
  •      transplant surgery
  •      prolonged ICU admissions resulting in severe deconditioning

As a guide, the average hospital stay is about 10-14 days for the orthopaedic group and 3-4 weeks for the others.
