What treatments do you offer?
We offer a wide variety of treatments, both surgical and non-surgical. If your pain is affecting your quality of life, and less invasive methods aren’t working any more, you may be recommended surgery.
Some of our most common procedures are:
Knee surgery in Droitwich
Whether you need a total knee replacement, partial knee replacement or knee arthroscopy, you can feel confident that you’re in great hands at BMI The Droitwitch Spa Hospital.
Our orthopaedic consultants have a breadth of experience and knowledge when it comes to knees.
- Total knee replacement
If you’re suffering from chronic knee pain, a knee replacement may be the answer.
This type of surgery involves removing the damaged surface of the knee and replacing it with an artificial joint.
- Knee arthroscopy
One of the advantages of a knee arthroscopy is that your consultant can diagnose your condition and often treat the problem at the same time.
Also, as the knee doesn’t need to be completely opened, recovery can be much quicker.
- Partial knee replacement
A partial knee replacement is a less invasive procedure that replaces only the affected part of your knee. This can be beneficial for some patients as it avoids healthy bone and ligaments from being removed as would happen with a total knee replacement.
Hip surgery in Droitwich
- Hip replacement surgery
This involves removing a damaged hip joint and replacing it with an artificial one (known as a prosthesis or implant).
The aim of this surgery is to alleviate the symptoms of pain and allow you to return to the normal activities that you enjoyed previously.
Our physiotherapists can then work with you on a programme to encourage successful recovery.
BMI Droitwitch Spa also offers hip replacement using a minimally invasive muscle-sparing technique.
Alongside our range of treatments and high standards of patient care, we strive to provide a fast diagnosis, efficient treatment and a speedy recovery.
