Leading Consultant Knee Surgeons treat a wide range of knee symptoms and conditions
Sports injuries and general ‘wear-and-tear’ in the joint are the two most common causes of pain and/or stiffness in the knee. If your symptoms are mild, it can often be fairly easy to ignore them.
Many knee problems will often resolve themselves naturally over time, without the need for any treatment. However, if your symptoms do not go away or start to become worse, it is sensible to get expert help.
At BMI The Harbour Hospital in Poole, Dorset, leading Consultant Knee Surgeons treat a wide range of knee symptoms and conditions, helping to get people out of pain and stiffness, and back to better movement and function in the knee again. They would be delighted to help you too.
Non-surgical (conservative) treatments are often extremely helpful at relieving symptoms. These treatments include:
If these treatments are not able to relieve your symptoms adequately, surgery may be an option. In other cases, such as a ligament tear, surgery may be needed as the first treatment option.
Whatever symptoms you have, your consultant will carry out a comprehensive investigation to diagnose the problem and will then arrange the most appropriate treatment for your specific condition as soon as possible.
At BMI The Harbour Hospital, we provide an extremely comprehensive range of knee treatments, including:
Years ago, the only way of operating on a knee was with “open” surgery.
Nowadays, many operations can be done using keyhole surgery (knee arthroscopy).
This minimally invasive surgery can be used to diagnose and repair problems within the joint.
Knee arthroscopy causes less pain, reduces scarring and can help to improve recovery times.
They will carry out an examination of your knee. The hip, back and lower leg will also often be examined as pain in the knee can be referred from a problem in these areas.
While this may be all that is needed to make a diagnosis and plan treatment, further investigations may be required. This will often be an X-ray, MRI scan or ultrasound, all of which are available at BMI The Harbour Hospital.
Once all results are back, your consultant will explain them to you and then discuss suitable treatment options with you. They will let you know the results you should expect to see from any treatment, as well as the risks and possible complications.
You will always have the information you need to make an informed choice about treatment, and your consultant will be happy to discuss any questions or concerns you may have.
It is important to know that there is never a ‘one size fits all’ treatment for a knee problem. Treatment will always be tailored to your specific requirements in order to give you the best result possible.
People are often referred to us by their GP, physiotherapist or private medical insurance provider. Others self-refer, having been recommended to us by a family member or friend.
We treat private medical insurance and self-pay patients.
