Hip Replacement Surgery

This is one of the most successful medical procedures of the modern era. It involves removing the diseased and damaged hip joint and replacing with a prosthetic joint, normally under a regional anaesthetic. Modern hip replacements function exceptionally well and are expected to do so for at least 20 years (although about 80% will last for more than 30 years).

Knee Replacement Surgery

This is a very successful operation for getting rid of the pain of arthritis in the knees. It involves removing the diseased joint surfaces of the knee and resurfacing them with a prosthesis, normally under a regional anaesthetic. Knee replacements should be expected to function well up to around 20 years.

Trauma Surgery

This involves the surgical fixation of fractures, ligament and muscular tears. The aim of surgical repair of injuries is to speed up the recovery process and ensure optimal function is returned to the injured limb as soon as possible. Fixation of the fractures allows early weight bearing and joint movement, which would not be possible with traditional casting of the injury. This allows rehabilitation to start immediately and return to function, work and/or sport earlier.

"It is now a year since my first hip replacement and over six months since my second. I really appreciated your friendly, they need doing, let's get on and do it style and your close monitoring of me including visits to the Ward over the weekend on both occasions, which facilitated me going home when I was ready. I recovered quickly, without any complications and I am very grateful for your (and the team assisting you) skill and expertise enabling me to bound forward, including many long walks and skiing next year. Well played. Thank you."
