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.

"....there was no pain after my hip operation and I was back at home 2 nights later. During my inpatient stay, Mr Edmondson showed great concern for my wellbeing and said that the operation had been 100% successful.

I was followed up by Mr Edmondson at regular intervals after surgery: each time I had an X-Ray and was informed that all was well with the new joint.

My final visit was made to see Mr Edmondson at 6months after surgery, by this stage I had returned to my Gym (an hour fours days per week) and was fully back into sailing/racing my dinghy at weekends – at which he was very pleased.

I cannot thank Mr Edmondson enough for his excellent ‘repair’ work to my hip and for his kindness and attention to my welfare."
