Fortius opens specialist orthopaedic centre in London


Fortius Group's new day surgery centre in Marylebone provides a streamlined and modern operating environment, centred around the needs of the patient. The design is based on the highly successful American model of dedicated day surgery centres, where the time the patient spends in a hospital environment is minimised while operational efficiency allows the effectiveness of specialist, highly skilled teams to be maximised.

The 12,500 square foot facility includes three state-of-the-art operating theatres, two with laminar flow, a dedicated anaesthetic room, and a five-bed recovery area. The ward comprises of five private en-suite rooms, and seven-day case pods.

Utilising the latest in theatre technology, one of the theatres is set up to allow for live streaming – which will provide scope for the introduction of leading edge training. All three theatres are equipped with state of the art arthroscopy equipment, image intensifiers, ultrasound and surgical instrumentation.

Fortius CEO Jim McAvoy comments: “The new centre will make a real difference to the patient experience.”

Fortius Surgical offers day surgery to patients whenever possible, as it minimises the amount of time they need to spend in a medical environment and recovery is quicker, reducing the disruption to their daily life. Length of stay following surgery has been steadily reducing over the past decade and this has been accelerated with enhanced recovery programmes that encourage early mobilisation.

The Fortius clinics have become the centre of choice for many international sports clubs and teams and the company is an accredited FIFA Medical Centre of Excellence, of which there are only 48 globally.
