The trauma and elective orthopaedic Occupational Therapy team are based at University Hospital Llandough. We are an integral part of the service provided to patients who are undergoing orthopaedic surgery. We specialise in the treatment of patients who are admitted to hospital due to a traumatic accident, and patients undergoing planned surgery.
Occupational Therapy input for people undergoing elective orthopaedic surgery can take place in the hospital during your admission or pre-operatively via telephone or video consultation. Assessment and intervention for trauma patients who have sustained fractures will take place in the hospital environment.
The Trauma Occupational Therapy team are based at two sites:
When you have had an operation following an injury – such as a hip, knee or ankle fracture – the Occupational Therapist will meet you on the ward.
The Elective Occupational Therapy team are based at University Hospital Llandough.
Occupational Therapy for elective surgery – such as hip or knee replacements, or foot or ankle surgery – starts before your planned operation.
You may be contacted by phone before your operation by a member of the team.
You will be referred to the team via your GP or consultant.
