Anna Clarke

Miss Clarke has been a paediatric orthopaedic consultant at one of the leading teaching hospitals in the country since 2014. As part of her training she undertook fellowships both in the UK and Australia and has had broad experience in all aspects of children's orthopaedics. She has a real passion for the care of children with musculoskeletal conditions and trauma.

 

Miss Clarke specialises in paediatric trauma including long bone trauma and periarticular trauma. Other subspecialty interests include the surgical management of spasticity, including ultrasound guided awake botulinum toxin injections. As part of the SDR team she has experience in the complex assessment and treatment of the musculoskeletal issues after SDR (including 'percs' muscle lengthening procedures). Miss Clarke set up and now jointly run the specialist 'SDR/Orthopaedic' clinic with Mr Atherton, the SDR physiotherapists and our orthotist. She is also interested in the care of upper limb conditions affecting children, particularly hemiplegic cerebral palsy.

 

Paediatric orthopaedics is extremely varied. Having performed large numbers of all types of elective paediatric orthopaedic surgery she undertakes regular surgery for conditions affecting the upper limb such as neuromuscular conditions like cerebral palsy, and the sequelae of infection or trauma.
