Dedicated, effective treatment for all knee conditions.
Many knee injuries resolve themselves naturally over time, but if your symptoms continue to bother you, further investigation and treatment may be needed.
Similarly, if you are suffering from wear and tear in your knee and your symptoms are starting to limit your mobility, medical guidance and expert treatment can be helpful in keeping you active.
At The Alexandra Hospital, leading national and international Orthopaedic Consultant Surgeons provide treatment for all knee conditions, helping patients regain mobility and function.
Treatments available at The Alexandra include physiotherapy, cortisone injections and state-of-the-art surgery. In addition, biological therapies such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections are available for knee conditions such as arthritis or tendinitis.
Your Consultant will advise you on all your options and how they will help you return to better health.
Many people who seek the help of an Orthopaedic Consultant Surgeon will not actually require knee surgery.
If your symptoms don’t respond to those treatments, you may need surgery.
Consultant Surgeons with national and international profiles make up our multidisciplinary team here at The Alexandra Hospital in Manchester, and as the largest private hospital outside London, we provide a full range of surgical treatments, including:
Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries are among the most common. According to NHS research they account for 40% of all knee injuries in sport.
The anterior cruciate ligament connects the thigh bone to the tibia through the knee joint. Severe injuries usually require surgery. This is known as ACL reconstruction.
The ACL has two main functions: First, it helps with the stability of the knee joint, and second, it helps with the forward and back movement of the leg.
Your Consultant will carry out a physical examination of your knee, and possibly your hip, back and lower leg, as sometimes, pain in your knee can be caused by problems in those areas.
Your Consultant may also need to have additional tests or investigations carried out. These may include X-ray, MRI, CT, or ultrasound scans. At The Alexandra Hospital in Manchester, we pride ourselves on having ultramodern equipment to ensure the best possible analysis and diagnosis for our patients.
For some knee problems, your Consultant may recommend carrying out keyhole surgery as well as specific scans to get a clearer view of the wear and tear or damage. All these options will be explained in full during your consultation, so you get a clear breakdown of all the procedures and costs involved.
All tests will be carried out as soon as possible so should you need to have surgery, it won’t be delayed, and we can help you recover in the quickest possible way.
All costs associated with your treatment will be explained in detail with you during your consultation.
