Plastics

The plastics physiotherapist at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) sees children with a wide range of problems. Some of these problems are present at birth (congenital) and some may have developed in childhood. Children who need plastic or reconstructive surgery are seen as outpatients, day case patients or inpatients. Children and young people need to be referred to physiotherapy by the plastics medical team before they are reviewed.

Neuromuscular

The Neuromuscular service sees babies, infants, children and teenagers with a wide variety of disorders. The disorders range in age of onset and severity and are usually inherited (genetic) conditions but in some cases they are acquired. 

At Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), physiotherapists are an important part of the Neuromuscular team.

Lung transplant

This information from Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) is for parents of children and young people undergoing assessment for possible lung or heart-lung transplantation. A transplant is a serious operation and is not without risk. A transplant can be the only effective treatment option for certain serious lung diseases; however, it is not a cure. In many situations transplantation can lead to an extension of life with improved quality.
