Orthopaedics is a branch of medicine that focuses on the care of the musculoskeletal system. This system is made up of muscles, bones and joints, as well as ligaments, and tendons. The study of orthopaedics is truly fascinating and it offers doctors the opportunity to treat patients with conditions that are affecting the muscles and bones, allowing patients to live fuller and more mobile lives. Here at Coriel Orthopaedic Group our surgeons have over 100+ years of combined experience ensuring that we provide our patients with world-class expertise, patient care and treatment.

Appointments in Worksop…
Not sure what to expect in an appointment? Here is a little more information. One of our Orthopaedic surgeons will work to diagnose the condition of the patient. This normally includes conducting a physical examination and possible taking X-rays if there is a need to do so.
Sometimes, we will need to use other methods such as an injection, to help make the diagnosis or treat the condition, additional testing may also be necessary to confirm the diagnosis.
How we diagnose conditions
In order to help diagnose a patient’s condition, our surgeon will firstly have a conversation with the patient regarding their symptoms and level of pain or discomfort. Following this they will carry out a physical examination which may lead to X-Rays and possible further tests such as bone scans. Our surgeons will be with you every step of the way to ensure that you get the medical treatment that you need, as well as personal patient care and support.
