SSC pleased to support HSE in response to Covid-19
In light of the Coronavirus pandemic, Sports Surgery Clinic has committed its facilities and resources to the HSE until further notice.
This partnership, which includes all private hospitals, will provide a significant boost to the HSE, providing it with added resources and capacity to treat those patients that need hospital care over the coming period.
This means that many of our treatments have been suspended and we are reviewing all planned procedures and consultations.
Please note the following:
If you recently had an orthopaedic procedure at SSC or are currently undergoing treatment at the clinic, please contact your consultant's secretary/department directly.
SSC does not have an Accident & Emergency Department and does not accept walk-in patients. If you require urgent medical attention, please go to your nearest acute hospital.
