Knee surgery can help give you back movement that’s free of pain and stiffness
Many knee injuries will get better over time, but if your symptoms last, or are particularly limiting, you may want the reassurance of further investigations and expert advice.
At Bishops Wood, our consultant knee surgeons assess, diagnose and treat all knee conditions, helping people to get out of pain and back to better mobility and function once more. Whether you’re suffering from arthritis in your knee, damage to a ligament or meniscus or poor alignment of the knee joint itself, we would be delighted to help you.
Many causes of knee pain can be resolved with assessment, reassurance and suitable advice. If further treatment is needed, whether physiotherapy, sports therapy, cortisone injections or surgery, it can be easily arranged for you here at Bishops Wood Hospital. We also offer Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections and Shock-wave therapy (SWT).
Common reasons people come to see a knee surgeon include:
If your knee symptoms don’t respond suitably to non-surgical (conservative) treatment options, you may be advised that surgery will be needed to successfully resolve the problem.
The knee surgeons here at Bishops Wood Hospital provide the full spectrum of surgical treatments available, including:
Your consultant will carry out a physical examination of your knee, and possibly your hip, back or lower leg if they suspect a problem in any of these places.
Depending on your symptoms and the physical examination of your knee, you may be referred for additional tests or investigations. With X-ray, CT, MRI and ultrasound on-site, we can arrange these for you easily and quickly where required.
Once the results of any tests are back and your consultant has been able to confirm a diagnosis, they will talk through the results with you and discuss suitable treatment options.
For some conditions, your consultant may carry out a type of keyhole surgery known as a knee arthroscopy. A few small cuts are made in your knee and a flexible tube (arthroscope) with a light and camera attached is passed into the joint. This transmits a real-time video feed to a screen, giving your surgeon a clear view inside the knee joint. If any problems are seen, such as a ligament tear or damage to the cartilage, they may be able to be corrected at the same time, avoiding the need for further surgery.
From assessment and diagnosis through to treatment and post-surgical care, we are here for you. Your consultant will explain how your surgery will be done and what results you should expect to see as a result.
Any type of surgery has risks and potential complications. Your consultant will discuss these with you to ensure you have the details you need to make an informed decision about any treatment. If you have any questions or concerns, they will be very happy to talk these through with you.
Many of our patients have private medical insurance, but it’s important to realise that you don’t need to have this to have treatment at Bishops Wood Hospital. Self-pay options are available. We offer very competitive and transparent package deals, including the option to spread out the costs over a year with no interest charges.
Whether you live close by in Northwood itself, elsewhere in Middlesex or will be visiting us from further afield, you will benefit from:
