Some of the most common treatments we perform are:
- Knee replacement surgery in Bath
If you’re in pain and find that non-surgical treatments are no longer working, you might be recommended a knee replacement.
This is where your damaged joint is removed and replaced with a new one, often called an implant or prosthesis. Successful knee replacement surgery will reduce your pain and should give you increased mobility and flexibility in the joint.
- Hip replacement surgery
Hip problems often occur as a result of degenerative conditions, such as osteoarthritis. Hip replacement surgery may be suggested if you are dealing with persistent pain in your hip joint that isn’t getting better with non-surgical options.
The surgery involves removing the damaged hip and replacing it with an artificial one, known as a prosthesis or implant. It should reduce your pain and allow you to move your joint more freely.
- Foot & ankle treatment
If you have pain, swelling or stiffness in your foot or ankle, our orthopaedic team can help to diagnose the source of your problem and put together a bespoke treatment plan.
