We operate in London, Brighton and the South of England to provide expert paediatric orthopaedic services.

Care when you need it

As a parent, your priority is ensuring that you are doing all you can for your child. When they are ill, you will want to find the best care and as quickly as possible. We can offer convenient appointments in different locations to assess your child and either give a diagnosis or make decisions about what treatment they may need.

Thomas Crompton

Mr Crompton is an orthopaedic consultant specialising in paediatrics and trauma. He qualified from St Bartholomew’s and The Royal London Medical School in 2004. He has a special interest in children’s trauma, hip problems and neuromuscular conditions.

What can we do to help?

We can help to find a diagnosis or come up with a treatment plan that meets the needs of your child. We always start with a consultation to understand what your child is going through before making any decisions based on this assessment. With every child we ensure that they feel as comfortable as possible – it can be scary visiting the hospital or seeing numerous doctors, so we do our best to make them feel at ease.

Our experience covers a range of different conditions within paediatric orthopaedics. You can see some of the common conditions we treat below. However, this is not an exclusive list and often we see children who don’t have a single defined condition, but instead a group of symptoms or multiple problems.

Common questions we get asked

Below are some of the questions we get asked on a regular basis. We would always recommend a consultation to ensure that we are providing the information that is correct for your child, but these may provide a starting point or help to give you some information or answers you are looking for.

What parents say

" We as parents have complete confidence in all that you do, and have done for us, and appreciate your commitment to McKenzie. Your attention is both professional, personal and fills us with confidence and it is much appreciated. "

McKenzie's Dad

Dr Thomas Crompton did a fantastic job on our daughters hip dysplasia. We couldn't be happier with the results. We know as parents it’s the hardest decision to make for a child to undergo surgery at such a young age, but just feel relieved to know you are in amazing hands!

We went to see Mr Crompton for his expertise in a fairly rare disease. He's great with my son, and takes a really holistic and pragmatic approach to managing the disease. He considered latest research, and my son's latest well being. It was immensely reassuring seeing him
K.C. Horley
The information and support we received from the staff was very good, the main challenge was the waiting areas as we were waiting around 45-60minutes in total which was challenging with a 1year old who wasn't really interested in the wall toys provided.
