The trust is involved in the teaching and training of orthopaedic trainee surgeons, with our surgeons offering exposure to a variety of advanced hip and knee replacement techniques.
While we recognize the importance of training we maintain high standards by ensuring all procedures are performed under the direct supervision of one of our specialist joint replacement consultants.

We currently accept hip and knee referrals at many of our community clinics. Clinics are available at Guisborough, Brotton, Redcar and Richmond as well as at the Friarage Hospital and The James Cook University Hospital sites.
