At BMI Kings Park Hospital, our team of Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeons, Spinal Surgeons and Specialists in Sports Injuries supported by Healthcare Professionals, Nurses, Anaesthetists and Chartered Physiotherapists offer a comprehensive range of orthopaedic treatments and services.
Whether you require treatment for the hip, knee, shoulder, spine, foot or ankle, you can rest assured that we’ll provide high levels of care throughout your stay with us.
We also know how important fast access to treatment is, which is why you won’t have to wait long to see a consultant. Appointments are often available within 48 hours. Not only will you be seen quickly, but you’ll receive a treatment plan that’s tailored to you. We also offer our patients an Enhanced Recovery Programme (ERP) which aims to help you recover faster after surgery.
If you’re suffering with chronic hip pain, our team of Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeons provide a range of different hip surgeries depending on your specific needs. From hip replacement surgery to hip resurfacing or hip arthroscopy, our goal is to get you back to a normal level of activity as quickly as possible.
Hip Replacement Surgery
If you’re living with chronic hip pain, hip replacement surgery may be a solution. If you decide to have surgery, the damaged hip joint will be removed and replaced with an artificial ball and socket made from durable artificial materials.
An alternative to total hip replacement, hip resurfacing repairs the damaged tissue around your hip socket. This type of surgery only replaces the femoral head and neck as opposed to the whole joint.
Knee surgery can help to relieve debilitating symptoms associated with chronic conditions, such as arthritis. If you’re experiencing severe pain and stiffness in your knee joint, then knee surgery may be required. The aim of knee surgery is to restore function, increase mobility and reduce painful symptoms.
Knee Replacement Surgery
If you choose to have knee replacement surgery, the damaged or deteriorated part of your knee will be removed and replaced with an artificial joint. Not only can a new knee significantly reduce or remove your pain, it can also help you to live life to the full again.
Also called keyhole surgery, a knee arthroscopy is performed to diagnose and treat problems relating to the knee. One benefit of this procedure is that your recovery time can be quicker.
ACL Reconstruction Surgery
The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is a vital part of your knee as it helps to keep it stable. If you’ve torn or ruptured your ACL it can be repaired with ACL reconstruction surgery. Successful surgery can restore function and help prevent your knee from giving way.
Constant shoulder pain can make day-to-day life quite difficult. If you’re considering surgery, we offer a range of shoulder treatments; including rotator cuff surgery, shoulder arthroscopy and shoulder replacement.
The InternalBrace has revolutionised the way patients recover and the time in which they do so, is a ‘non-absorbable ribbon’ which can protect and support any ligament repair or reconstruction. It acts like a seatbelt mimicking normal anatomy and providing protection only if the repaired ligament is excessively loaded and at risk of injury.
The brace stabilises the joint, crucially allowing patients to begin light exercise within a week. While exercise is gradually increased in intensity and duration, the ligament/tendon grows through the InternalBrace and then quickly and naturally remodels and, in some cases, reattaches itself to bone.
Because the affected area does not need to be incapacitated, it does not need to be put in a plaster cast, which means minimal loss of condition for the surrounding muscles and a shortened recovery time.
