Hip & Knee Surgery Service for Regular and National Service Veterans

There is a service for military veterans to have their hip or knee arthritis assessed and, if appropriate have joint replacement surgery. We understand that the service is led by Lt Col Carl Meyer, Military Consultant Hip and Knee Arthroplasty Surgeons at Oswestry’s Specialist Orthopaedic Hospital.

Lt Col Meyer is a regular serving officer who is an Orthopaedic Trauma surgeon with 16 Medical Regiment Colchester. The service is open to anyone who has been in regular military service, including National Service.

It is based at the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (RJAH), Oswestry, Shropshire; a centre of Orthopaedic excellence specialising in lower limb replacement surgery.

To obtain an NHS referral please ask your GP to make a named referral to Lt Col Meyer at the Veterans Hip & Knee Surgery Service in Oswestry.
