Thank you for visiting our new website. Kernow Hand Surgeons is a professional group based in Cornwall fully dedicated to treatment of diseases and injuries that affect the hand, wrist and peripheral nerves.
The group consists of two highly experienced Surgeons, two specialist therapists and two secretarial practice managers. We offer private as well as NHS funded consultations, surgery and hand therapy services. The care of private patients is based at the Duchy Hospital in Truro. NHS outpatient clinics are held at the Royal Cornwall hospital (Treliske) in Truro, Barncoose hospital in Redruth and West Cornwall Hospital in Penzance. NHS operations are performed at the Royal Cornwall hospital (Treliske) in Truro and St.Michaels hospital in Hayle.
This website is designed to provide useful information for patients and GPs including contact details, referral pathways as well as brief descriptions of some of the common conditions and their treatment.
We strongly believe that well-informed motivated patients are more likely to have successful outcomes after treatment. This is particularly true in Hand and Wrist surgery, were patients’ active participation and compliance with the recommended aftercare is vital for maximum benefits and swift return to work and other activities of daily living.
Our aim is therefore to present our patients and GP colleagues with an easily accessible on-line source of information as well as a portal for direct communication with your local experts in this field.
Bearing in mind that each patient is unique, we strongly advice to regard the information provided here as a guide and by no means a substitute for a personal consultation.
We welcome any feedback to improve the site and our services.
The team of Kernow Hand Surgeons
