Assessment and treatment for a wide range of knee symptoms and conditions
Experienced Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeons provide assessment and treatment for a wide range of knee symptoms and conditions. They would be delighted to try to help you too.
Your knee is one of the more complex joints in your body, heavily involved in making many common movements possible, from sitting and standing to walking and running.
As a weight-bearing joint, it has a variety of loads and forces being put through it each time you move. While the structure of the knee helps to safely manage and disperse these loads without causing damage to the joint, if any part of the knee is damaged it may cause symptoms like:
If you have any of the symptoms above, or any other concerns about your knee health, it is sensible to get things looked at by a specialist. Why not book your private appointment with us today?
Conditions that may cause problems in the knee include:
Whatever is causing your knee pain, you will appreciate an accurate diagnosis and effective treatment as soon as possible.
If these are not able to relieve your symptoms, surgery may be an option. The Consultants at BMI The Hampshire Clinic provide a range of surgical treatments for the knee, from minor to complex, including:
Many types of knee surgery can be carried out with keyhole surgery (knee arthroscopy). This gives a clear view of the inside of the knee and allows surgical repairs to be carried out for a number of problems, such as meniscal tears / damage, articular cartilage damage and/or a ligament injury. As only very small incisions (cuts) are made in the skin, pain is reduced, scarring is less visible, and recovery may be faster.
Whether you require operative or non-operative management, your Consultant will always tailor treatment to your specific needs and will explain the different options available so that you can make an informed choice about treatment.
They will carry out a physical examination of your knee, and possibly your hip, back or lower leg if they suspect your knee pain is being referred from a problem in any of these places.
This may be all that is needed to make a diagnosis, but further investigations will often be needed like X-ray, CT, MRI and/or ultrasound. These can all be arranged for you on-site.
Once the results of any investigations are back and a diagnosis has been made, your Consultant will meet with you again to discuss them with you and to explore treatment options. If you have any questions or concerns, they will be very happy to talk through them with you.
If it is found that your knee pain is being referred from a problem in your hip or back, you will be referred to the most suitable specialist at the hospital for further help, such as Physiotherapy, a hip surgeon or spinal surgeon.
Most people are referred to us by their GP, physiotherapist (or sports physiotherapist) or their private medical insurance provider. You can self-refer, although a medical referral is often very helpful as it means your Consultant has easy access to any previous scans and investigations and your full medical history.
We treat people with private medical insurance and self-pay patients.
When you visit BMI The Hampshire Clinic for help with a knee problem, you will benefit from:
