Mr Norman-Taylor has been a consultant orthopaedic surgeon for some 20 years. He has a particular interest in neurodisability – looking after children with cerebral palsy, spinal cord problems (such as spina bifida) and neuromuscular conditions, such as Charcot Marie Tooth disease. Over the years he has also built up a great deal of experience with other conditions such as hip dysplasia (DDH/CDH), Perthes disease, slipped epiphyses, club foot and limb length inequality.
Mr Norman-Taylor’s NHS practice is at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children (GOSH) where he works closely with the neurodisability, neuromuscular, neurosurgical and plastics surgery teams to provide a comprehensive multidisciplinary service.
He was formerly at Evelina London Children’s Hospital (ELCH) which is part of Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust.
Great Ormond Street has a separate service for private and international patients, and Mr Norman-Traylor also offers children’s orthopaedic care at two London private hospitals:
The Portland Hospital for Women and Children is the only private hospital in London specialising in the care of women and children. It is part of the HCA group. It has a maternity unit and a paediatric intensive care. It has an out-of-hours service for children.
The Cromwell Hospital is a private BUPA hospital in Kensington that offers treatments to adults and children. It also has an out-of-hours service. This is where Mr Norman-Taylor can see young adults as well as children.
