About Us

Yeovil Orthopaedic Clinic (YOC) was formed in 2016 when the consultant orthopaedic surgeons working within Yeovil District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust came together to launch their private orthopaedic clinic. This allows us to work as a team to provide high quality specialist care for all musculoskeletal conditions other than spinal surgery. We are focussed on getting the very best outcomes for our patients with a philosophy of friendly, individually centred high quality care. As consultants we work closely within our clinic allowing you the assurance of being treated by the surgeon with the specialist training relevant for your symptom or condition.

Yeovil Orthopaedic Clinic is based predominantly within the Kingston Wing Private Unit at Yeovil Hospital, however some of the group also work at other private hospitals in the South West.

We submit all of our patient data to the relevant national databases (National Joint Registry, National Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMS) and National Ligament Registry). Through these independent databases, we are able to show that we achieve significantly better results across a wide range of operations, for example:

  • Our infection rates are for total hip, knee and shoulder replacement surgery are half the national average
    • Yeovil 0.3%
    • National 0.6%
     
  • Lower than average re-operation (revision) rate at 10 years after hip replacement.

    • Yeovil 2.8%
    • National average 4.8%
     
  • Top 10% of Orthopaedic departments nationally for low rates of litigation 2012-2017.


 

The Kingston Wing provides the private experience with the peace of mind of access to the full backup services of an acute NHS hospital (e.g. Intensive Care Unit and Cardiology services). Combined with the knowledge that a Consultant Orthopaedic surgeon from our clinic is available at any stage, this reassures you that not only your surgery but also your rehabilitation is safe and comfortable during your stay.

The aim of our specialists here at YOC is to provide the highest quality care with a personal approach in order to achieve confidence and assurance throughout your treatment.
