Information for Patients


Your orthopaedic surgeon will provide full information about your condition and any procedure required. For more common procedures, your surgeon may provide a patient information leaflet for you to take away with you.

Please discuss any concerns you may have with your surgeon or your GP. ZOA does not provide specific advice on medical conditions or procedures.

Ensuring outstanding care for patients is a core reason for ZOA’s existence. It is embodied in everything we do, and everything we are. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide patient information on the latest ‘best-practice’.

However, we enjoy strong partnerships with our sister Orthopaedic organisations in other countries and highly recommend that patients wishing to find out further information on specific conditions visit the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons Website. There, you will find an additional, comprehensive library of information accessible to the public.
