What treatments do you offer?
At BMI The Park Hospital, our multidisciplinary team offers treatment for a wide range of orthopaedic problems and conditions.
We can diagnose your injury or disorder and create a bespoke treatment plan based on your individual needs. This could include:
- Medication, exercise, surgery or other treatment plans
- Rehabilitation by recommending exercises or physiotherapy to restore movement, strength and function
- Prevention with information and treatment plans to prevent injury or slow the progression of diseases
Some of the most common treatments and conditions we see at BMI The Park Hospital are:
- Osteoarthritis of the hip, knee, hand or shoulder
Osteoarthritis causes a joint to become stiff and painful. It may also become swollen or tender, or make a grating sound when moving. Joints commonly affected are the hips, knees, hands and shoulders.
- Cruciate or ligament injuries of the knee
Cruciate or ligament injuries occur when the knee is twisted or overextended. This can happen as a result of sports activities, particularly football, netball, tennis or skiing. A common injury to this area is anterior cruciate ligament injury, or ACL injury.

- Rotator cuff injuries or tears of the shoulder
The rotator cuff is found in the shoulder and keeps your shoulder joint stable. The rotator cuff can become injured and torn through playing sports such as baseball or tennis, or it can simply occur due to wear and tear from normal life.

- Back pain
Back pain is very common and can occur for a number of reasons. The most common causes of back pain are heavy lifting, incorrect posture or poor fitness.
Ongoing or chronic back pain, however, may indicate a musculoskeletal condition. Our orthopaedic consultants can help identify the cause of your pain to determine the best treatment plan for you.
- Tendon problems of the ankle, knee or wrist
Issues with tendons in the knee, ankle or wrist may occur because of overuse, repetitive use or sudden injury. Common conditions include tendonitis of the knee, carpal tunnel syndrome and Achilles tendonitis.
- Sports injuries
Our sports injuries clinic provides services for adults and children (aged 12 and over). Our aim is to get you back to fitness as soon as possible by offering a treatment plan specific to your individual needs.
We treat injuries including muscle tears, tennis elbow and runner’s knee.

- Knee replacement surgery
If you’re in pain and non-surgical treatments are no longer working, you might be recommended a knee replacement.
At BMI The Park Hospital in Nottingham we offer total and partial knee replacement surgery, revision knee replacement, total knee replacement and also knee arthroscopy.
Read more about knee replacement surgery.
- 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.
We also perform other hip surgeries including hip resurfacing and hip arthroscopy. If you’re in Nottingham and need hip surgery, get in touch with BMI The Park Hospital.

Enhanced Recovery Programme in Nottingham
If you have surgery at BMI The Park Hospital, we offer an enhanced recovery programme. This aims to ensure you are in the best possible condition for when you have your procedure and to make sure your recovery goes as smoothly as possible.
We help you to plan for your operation and give you the tools and information you need to actively enhance your own recovery.
Our orthopaedic consultants work closely with other members of our clinical team to make sure you’re supported throughout, helping you to leave hospital sooner and get back to normal life as quickly as possible.
Before your stay with us you’ll have a pre-assessment with a physiotherapist or occupational therapist and together we’ll put together a discharge plan. This will include personalised exercise plans to help you recover.
We’ll encourage you to start moving a soon as possible after surgery to help reduce the risk of post-operative complications. We’ll also offer advice on nutrition and activity once you get home so that you feel empowered to take control of your own recovery.
If you need outpatient physiotherapy or follow-up advice, our team is here for you.
