Mission Statement

The establishment of Edinburgh Orthopaedic Specialists recognises that the best interests of the patient are the only interests of the Service. The success of this ideal relies on the promotion of patient care, education and research.

Patient Care

‘We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.’

We understand that our duty to the patient requires us to ensure that the patient receives the highest quality individualised care undertaken by the most appropriate surgeon using the best knowledge and techniques available.


‘The greater danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.’

Our purpose is to share our standards and methods with the wider medical community, through the establishment of fellowships, publication of research and audit, and teaching.


‘There is no medicine like hope, no incentive so great, and no tonic so powerful as expectation of something better tomorrow’
-O S Marden

Our vision for the future wellbeing of our patients relies on the critical analysis of what we do and pursuit of the horizons of the unknown by the investment in laboratory-based and clinical research and audit programmes.
