The Pulvertaft Hand Centre
is a long-established specialist hand surgery centre within the Royal Derby Hospital that treats a wide range of conditions of the hand and wrist.
The department runs postgraduate courses for doctors, nurses and therapists; the department also runs a course for local GPs on common elective hand surgery conditions.
Pulvertaft Hand Centre treats traumatic conditions of the hand. With dedicated facilities including outpatients and 3 theatres, the 8 consultants treat most conditions from the wrist to the finger tip.
Our team of specialist hand therapists treat conditions both post-operatively or by direct referral for conservative treatment. Our innovative approach results in the development and use of new and pioneering treatment.
