Long-term support and expert help
Many problems that are treated with hip surgery - including hip replacement procedures, hip arthroscopy procedures including osteotomy (bone removal) and cartilage repairs to the labrum - only benefit patients significantly once a lengthy period of rehabilitation has been completed.
At Circle, our hip surgeons carefully monitor our patients progress and have a very close working relationship with the musculoskeletal physiotherapy department.
Furthermore, immediately post operatively we offer treatment solutions through our ward-based physiotherapists. These include demonstration of exercise technique as well as tutorials on how to use walking aids safely.
Once discharged, patients can still benefit from our outpatient musculoskeletal physiotherapy service which is able to offer regular and convenient appointments, with flexible scheduling available to ensure convenience for each individual.
Strengthening is an important part of the rehabilitation process, both for safety to prevent hip dislocations after a hip replacement procedure, as well as to enable an appropriate return of normal walking pattern and, eventually, a return to sport.
To this end, Circle has invested in the latest rehabilitation equipment, providing our patients with the opportunity to strengthen their hip safely in a meaningful and pain-free range of motion throughout their rehabilitation process.
These Circle Health clinical values ensure our patients are able to return to their goals of activities of daily living and sports, faster and stronger.
