If pain or stiffness in your hip or knee is holding you back from doing the things you love, it might be time to consider a joint replacement.
It’s common for our joints to become worn down over time and many of us will develop conditions such as arthritis as we get older. But just because it’s common doesn’t mean you can't do anything about it.
At BMI Bath Clinic, we believe no one should have to suffer unnecessarily from hip or knee pain or stiffness.
Our consultant surgeons can help you get to the bottom of your symptoms, offering fast diagnosis and quick access to a tailored treatment plan. We’ll help you decide whether a hip or knee replacement is right for you.*
Our multidisciplinary team includes nurses, pain management specialists and chartered physiotherapists as well as consultant surgeons. They’ll work together to offer you a complete care package from diagnosis to recovery.
We’ll also assign you a dedicated Joint Replacement Coordinator to guide you through your journey with BMI Bath Clinic.
- What’s a Joint Replacement Coordinator?
If you’re considering hip replacement surgery or knee replacement surgery you’ll no doubt have a lot of questions. It’s normal to feel a bit nervous at the thought of any kind of operation.
At the Joint Replacement Centre we understand this and we want you to feel safe, informed and cared for throughout your journey with us.
That’s why we assign every single patient a dedicated Joint Replacement Coordinator to be there for you from start to finish.
Your Coordinator will be available to answer any questions you have, however big or small. They’ll serve as your guide both before and after treatment, meeting with you before your operation so you know what to expect and keeping you informed throughout the process.
During your recovery, you can speak with your Coordinator on the phone about any concerns you might have. It’s all part of our commitment to great aftercare.
- Meet our consultants
The Joint Replacement Centre is home to some of our most experienced consultants:
Our consultant hip and knee surgeons work closely with Bath Clinic's pain management consultants, including Dr Mike Coupe, as well as our physiotherapists and the radiology team.
Together we’ll ensure that a fast and accurate diagnosis is followed by the appropriate treatment.
- Hip and knee surgery
Our consultants and physiotherapists will consider and offer all alternative treatment options before recommending hip and knee surgery.
We offer non-surgical treatments including physiotherapy, image-guided injections and friendly, practical advice on lifestyle changes.
If you're dealing with chronic pain, however, you and your consultant may decide that hip or knee replacement surgery is the solution.
For hip surgery, procedures offered include hip replacement and revision hip replacement.
For knee surgery, procedures offered include total and partial knee replacement and revision knee replacement.
Outside of the Joint Replacement Centre, some of our consultants will also offer a range of other surgical procedures, such as knee arthroscopy or ACL reconstruction.
