Orthopaedics, Trauma and Plastics

The Orthopaedics, Trauma and Plastics Clinical Academic Group (CAG) is driving excellence across its key specialities.


The CAG covers a large surgical referral base within Guy’s and St Thomas’ and King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trusts. Our services include hip and knee replacements, complex spinal surgery, and a children’s orthopaedic team at the Evelina London Children’s Hospital. We are one of the largest plastic surgery departments in the UK.
