“Just thought I would let you know that I had a very successful weeks skiing in Verbier and got back last weekend. Weather fantastic and knee held up very well. Many, many thanks.”

“I couldn't ask for a better surgeon than Neil, he has honestly changed my life in 1 year and I can't thank him enough.”

“I would sincerely like to thank you and your team for the work you did on my knee after the x-ray revealed a 'nasty' break. Your expertise has given me back the use of this leg and I can now walk unaided for half a mile or more. The previous knee operation has also been a complete success.”

“The process from start to finish was smooth and efficient. I always knew where I was in the process, what to expect and when. A thoroughly professional service with a smile.”

“Pre-op information first class. Post-op conditions also first class. Very successful operation.”

“I am now in week 6 after the operation on my knee and I feel I must express my admiration for your skill and delight at the result. I am walking well and striding confidently into a bright new future. Many thanks.”

“Recovery from my knee operation was much quicker than expected. By 10 months I hardly knew I'd had problems with my knee. Able to walk properly again without any thought.”

“Care very good. Mr Bradbury was faultless. Would have liked to see specialist physiotherapist, Genevieve, all through my recovery as she was very helpful. Saw her at 6 months after my knee operation.”

“Mr Bradbury did a fantastic job on my left knee. At 75 I now have my life back!”

“You all did so much to relieve my anxiety and concerns with my knee replacement. I shall remember you with gratitude every time I walk the dog in the future. Thank you”

CT Scans

Computed tomography is an imaging procedure used to examine the internal structures of the body. It is the best modality for imaging bone and is particularly useful for identifying fractures.

CT scans can be useful for diagnosing a range of different knee conditions. During a CT scan, you will lie on a bed while a tub rotates around you, taking images.

CT scans are also appropriate for patients who are not able to have MRI perhaps due to having a pacemaker.

After your scan, you can drive and conduct your day to day activities normally. However any female patient who is, or might be pregnant, must notify the radiology department in advance of their examination.

MRI

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a safe, non-invasive diagnostic medical imaging technique which uses magnetic fields, radio waves and sophisticated computer programs to generate highly sophisticated images of the human body. An MRI allows our knee specialists to see soft tissues in great detail, as well as bone. MRIs produce cross-sectional pictures through every part of the body. The information from the scanner passes to a computer that produces an image of the internal structure of the knee.

MRI can help knee specialists diagnose many conditions of the knee and the procedure can take from twenty to ninety minutes.

The scan will not be painful nor will you feel any discomfort from after effects.

X-ray

An X-ray is an image of the internal structures of your body which is produced by exposure to a controlled source of radiation and stored on a special computer system. Despite all the development of more sophisticated forms of scanning, an X-ray examination remains one of the most accurate ways of detecting many knee problems.

X-ray examinations can be done as a simple outpatient procedure and you can go home straight afterwards.

Ultrasound

A diagnostic ultrasound is a form of imaging using sound waves, which allows your knee consultant to see inside the knee. It is more commonly used during pregnancy, but it can also be useful to diagnose a variety of other problems and conditions within muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments and soft tissue. The images are visible at the time of scan, meaning an ultrasound is also a useful tool to help consultant’s administer treatments.
