Your Treatment

What to expect.

Our ethos is one of teamwork, respect and building relationships with our patients. We want you to feel happy and in control of your treatment, and have an active role in deciding what’s best for you.

Step 1


You will be thoroughly assessed and the nature of your knee problem discussed. You may require further investigation and we have access to the latest investigation techniques, working with the best radiologists in the region using the most advanced equipment to help reach a diagnosis.

Step 2


We will discuss the diagnosis so you fully understand the nature of the problem and the various treatment options that are available. You may not require surgery, and if not, you'll be sent to our team of expert physiotherapists who will tailor a physio rehab program to suit your specific needs and get you back to 100% as soon as possible.

Step 3

Education & Pre-Assessment

If you require surgery, this will be fully explained to you and if you would like to proceed, we will make sure you are fully fit for surgery with a pre-operative assessment, so you have the safest and most comfortable experience possible.

Every member of the team is highly skilled and valued and are there to make your experience as smooth as possible.
