An orthopaedic surgeon has been appointed to Nuffield Health Newcastle Hospital.
Cristian Nita joins the team at the not-for-profit Nuffield Health Newcastle Hospital with nearly twenty years’ experience. He also works as a consultant with the North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust at Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle.
Cristian’s current clinical coverage includes Carlisle, Penrith, Workington, Keswick and areas across the Lake District and now his appointment to Nuffield Health Newcastle will enable more people to access his clinical expertise across the wider North East.
Cristian specialises in lower limb arthroplasty, soft tissue knee reconstruction and young adult knee preservation surgery.
“I’m really looking forward to bringing my knowledge and expertise to Nuffield Health in Newcastle,” said Cristian. “My quest has always been about joint preservation and trying to alleviate people’s pain and giving them increased mobility and longevity in their day-to-day lives.”
Cristian adds: “Surgery is not always the answer for early symptoms of wear and tear. In such situations, I employ modern concepts including bracing, lubricant supplements, steroid injections, are accompanied by honest and realistic advice.”
Nuffield Health offers diagnostic tests and operations with no waiting lists. The hospital also offers Private GP services, Health Assessments and Recovery Plus – a service which brings together a spectrum of healthcare services across Nuffield Health’s Hospitals and Fitness & Wellbeing Clubs.
