The Orthopaedic Services at BMI The London Independent Hospital can diagnose, treat and manage a wide range of conditions of the shoulders, hips, knees, sports injuries and more. Our experienced consultants will undertake investigative diagnostics to identify the most effective treatment.
Orthopaedics cover multiple aspects of our body that have specific needs, which is why many orthopaedic consultants specialise in a particular area of the body. The main areas of treatment at BMI London Independent Hospital are:
Hip Replacement Surgery
If your hip joint is damaged to the extent of not being able to move properly and causing pain even when resting, hip replacement surgery may be recommended. Our hip surgeons will advise the most appropriate treatment to help get you back to an active life.

This procedure can be used for both diagnosis and treatment. It allows consultants to see what is happening in your hip joint without making a big incision in your muscle tissue.

Knee replacement surgery is performed when the knee joint is damaged (often due to osteoarthritis) and it needs to be replaced with an artificial one. Depending on the extent of the damage, your surgeon may advise that only a partial knee replacement surgery is required.

A knee arthroscopy, also known as keyhole surgery, can be used to diagnose or treat conditions of the knee. This procedure can help to wash out any loose debris in the knee which can be caused by wear and tear. An arthroscope (a tiny surgical camera) will be inserted in the knee to look around and help diagnose the problem.

Hand and Wrist Surgery
Although the majority of people with musculoskeletal problems of the hand or wrist will not require surgery, this may be recommended if the pain has become debilitating, the loss of hand function has been extensive or you did not respond to alternative treatments.

Some orthopaedic surgeons will focus specifically on the spinal area and operate on conditions such as deformities of the spine. We can provide treatment for a range of spinal conditions, such as sciatica, spinal stenosis and back pain.
At BMI The London Independent Hospital, we also provide a full physiotherapy service that offers treatments for in-patients and out-patients.
