What treatments do you offer?
At BMI The Sloane Hospital, 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:
- Hip replacement
Hip replacement surgery can help to relieve painful symptoms of the hip joint, including swelling, inflammation and stiffness from conditions such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Hip replacement surgery can help you get back to being more active and help improve your mobility.
We also offer a range of other surgeries for hip complaints, such as hip arthroscopy and hip resurfacing.
- Knee replacement
Knee replacement surgery may be suitable if you have arthritis of the knee or have wear and tear in the knee joint.
There are two types of knee replacements our orthopaedic surgeons can perform: total knee replacement surgery, and partial knee replacement surgery.
The surgery you have will depend on a variety of factors, including the extent of the damage to your knee, your age, and your lifestyle.
- ACL reconstruction
ACL reconstruction surgery involves repairing or reconstructing the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), which is located behind the knee.
ACL reconstruction surgery is a common procedure for those who have suffered a sports injury.
- Subacromial decompression
Subacromial decompression is a procedure that treats shoulder impingement, which is pain caused by your bones and tendons rubbing together.
Shoulder impingement can be the result of a sports injury or of wear and tear on the shoulder tendons.
- Carpal tunnel treatment
Carpal tunnel surgery is performed on the wrist to alleviate pain and discomfort caused by abnormal pressure on the median nerve.
Carpal tunnel surgery can help to improve function and mobility, as well as reduce the amount of pain you may be experiencing.
