Private treatment for all knee conditions
Many knee injuries will resolve themselves naturally over time, but if your symptoms do continue to bother you, further investigation and treatment may be needed to resolve them.
Similarly, if you’re suffering from wear and tear in your knee and your symptoms are starting to get more severe and limiting your mobility, medical guidance and expert treatment can be extremely helpful in keeping you active.
At BMI The Alexandra, leading Consultant Knee Surgeons provide treatment for all knee conditions, helping people get out of pain and back to better mobility and knee function once more. Whether you’ve damaged a ligament or meniscus, have osteoarthritis in the joint or are being affected by poor alignment of the knee, they would be delighted to help you.
Often reassurance and suitable advice for recovery is all that is needed, but if further treatment is needed, we can arrange it for you simply and quickly.
Treatments available at The Alexandra include physical therapy, cortisone injections or surgery, including state-of-the-art Robotic-Arm Assisted Knee Surgery.
In addition, biological therapies such as Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections are also available for certain knee conditions such as arthritis or tendinitis.
It’s important to know that many people who visit with a Consultant Knee Surgeon for help will not actually require knee surgery.
Instead, their symptoms can be suitably managed and relieved using non-surgical (conservative) treatments such as physiotherapy, pain relief medication and joint injections.
If your knee symptoms don’t respond to conservative treatment and continue to cause you pain or difficulty, you may need surgery.
Consultant Knee Surgeons with national and international profiles choose to carry out their knee surgeries at The Alexandra. As the largest private hospital outside London, we can provide the full range of surgical treatments including:
This is available to private patients and allows for a greater degree of accuracy when balancing the knee.
Standard knee replacements may be 5-10 degrees out, whereas assistance from the MAKO robot can mean the surgery is accurate to fractions of millimetres.
This greater level of precision means your ‘new’ knee is far more likely to feel and function like you ‘old’, natural knee. In addition, there will be less peripheral damage to the knee and the surrounding muscles during surgery and your recovery time will often shorter.
If you would be interested in learning more about MAKO Robotic-Arm Assisted Knee Surgery, please ask you Consultant about it during your appointment.
Your Consultant will carry out a physical examination of your knee, and possibly your hip, back and lower leg if they suspect a problem in any of these places. Sometimes, pain in the knee can be caused by a problem in one of these areas.
Depending on your specific symptoms and their physical examination of your knee, your Consultant may want you to have some additional tests or investigations. Our comprehensive imaging facilities include X-ray, MRI, CT and Ultrasound, giving easy access to these as required when we investigate your knee problem.
Once the results of any tests are back and your Consultant has been able to confirm a diagnosis, they will discuss the results and explain suitable treatment options.
For some knee problems, your Consultant may carry out a type of keyhole surgery known as knee arthroscopy. This gives them a clear view inside the knee joint. If any particular problems are seen, such as cartilage damage or ligament tears, these can often be addressed during the arthroscopy, avoiding the need for more surgery in the future.
People choose to have their knee treatment at The Alexandra for a number of reasons. Some are referred to us from their GP, physiotherapist, sports physiotherapist or osteopath. Others are recommended to us by friends or family members who have been previously treated by us.
Many of our patients are from Manchester and the surrounding areas, but people also travel from much further afield, including from the Lake District, Staffordshire, Derbyshire and Lancashire, because of the expertise of the Consultant Knee Surgeons on-site.
Whether you live close by in Manchester itself or will be travelling from further afield, using private medical insurance or our self-pay option, you will benefit from:
