Orthopedic Services

I have dedicated my career to provide quality orthopedic care and improving the quality of life for those who suffer with arthritis in their hip and knee joints. Below is an overview of the services provided.

CONSULTATION

  • We discuss your condition in detail and options for treatment (see For Patients)
  • If further alternate expertise is required, you will be referred to an expert in that field
  • If opinion is needed on your past medical history eg heart, lung or kidney disease, written opinion will be sought

IF SURGERY IS NEEDED

  • Pre-operative X-Ray assessment and templating to optimize implant choice and ordering. This includes increasing use of patient-specific instrumentation and computer planning
  • Surgery undertaken with the utmost care and preparation to optimize excellent results
  • Surgery always performed to best of my abilities, and to the very best standards

POST-SURGERY

  • Follow-up to support you in hospital after surgery
  • Implementation of post-operative regimes to minimize risks of complications such as blood clots (DVT) and infection
  • On the rare occasions another procedure is required, it will be done as a priority
  • Long-term follow-up for joint replacement patients
