Matthew Burwell is the clinical lead for the Specialist Hip Unit at Sulis Hospital, Bath which is acknowledged for excellence in hip surgery.
Treatment for hip problems is not always straightforward and needs to be right for you. Your specialist will discuss the latest techniques and most appropriate treatment options, giving you the confidence to make the best decision.
Early diagnosis and specialist treatment are essential to full recovery.
Our aim is to help you regain your quality of life after surgery. This means helping you return to everyday activities as quickly as possible with an immediate postoperative recovery programme. You will be supported before, during and after surgery by the team.
A consistently high level of clinical excellence is achieved by following the recognised guidance as assessed by National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).
Matthew is one of only a few orthopaedic surgeons in the UK specialising exclusively in treating hip conditions. Replacements are a large part of his practice. Many patients are referred to him from other orthopaedic specialists.
