At BMI Bath Clinic, we have a Private Joint Replacement Centre for our patients. This is supported by our pioneering Mako®robotic-arm
system that is changing the way joint replacements are performed.
If pain or stiffness in your joint 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.

We believe no one should have to suffer unnecessarily from joint 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 replacement is right for you.*

What’s a Joint Replacement Coordinator?
If you’re considering any form of joint 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 Private Joint Replacement Centre consultants
Our consultant surgeons work closely with Bath Clinic's pain management consultants, 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.
Private Surgery for Hips and Knees in Bath
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.
Private Surgery for Shoulders in Bath
Common causes of shoulder pain include injury, overuse and osteoarthritis. These conditions can cause stiffness, swelling and reduced flexibility in the shoulder joint. After investigation and diagnosis, your specialist will work with you to decide on the best course of treatment to improve your range of motion and reduce your joint pain. Mild cases will first be recommended lifestyle changes, however there are also a variety of non-surgical treatments that can significantly improve your symptoms. If your condition is more advanced, or if you have an injury that needs to be fixed, you may be recommended for shoulder surgery.
Reasons for shoulder pain can include:
- Sport injuries in the young – investigation and repair of soft tissue damage (tendons/joint structures)
- Overuse or wear and tear in the middle age population – impingement/inflammation around the shoulder and frozen shoulders.
- Pain and stiffness threatening independence in the elderly – likely osteoarthritis
Solutions on offer include:
- Shoulder Arthroplasty using computer navigation implantation for complex cases
