The In-patient Orthopaedic Physiotherapy Team is located primarily on wards 33, 34, but also covers patients throughout the rest of the hospital who have been admitted with orthopaedic pathologies.
The aim of Physiotherapy is to commence rehabilitation as soon as the patient is able, as well as being taught exercises and post-operative advice in order to aid their recovery.
Our Physiotherapy team provide pre-operative educative talks to the forthcoming elective Total Knee Replacement and Total Hip Replacement patients on a weekly basis to help prepare them for their forthcoming surgery. The team offers The Enhanced Recovery Pathway for hip and knee replacements.
Patients requiring on-going Therapy on leaving Barnsley Hospital may be referred onto the following services:
