Stanmore Campus Open Day
Stanmore opens its doors to visitors on Saturday 22nd April to demonstrate the ground-breaking work and research that is shaping musculoskeletal medicine in the 21st Century and beyond.
The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital is a recognised world leader in the field of orthopaedics and neuro-musculoskeletal medicine and treats more than 120,000 patients a year for conditions ranging from acute spinal injuries to sarcoma. As well as being a leading centre for surgery and rehabilitation, RNOH also has an international reputation and track record for innovative translational research, working in close partnerships with University College London (UCL).
An open day at the Stanmore Campus is being held this month to focus on how clinicians and engineers are using technology and innovation to improve patient care. Activities include guided tours of the new hospital redevelopment site, operating theatres and research labs.
