Joint Specialists© are a group of Orthopaedic Surgeons super-specialising in the care of a particular joint in the body. The aim is to bring together a team of surgeons exclusively dealing with either the shoulder, the hip or the knee. The surgeons bring with them the latest of techniques as well as more than 15 years of experience in treating Orthopaedic conditions. They have undergone rigorous training in UK, as well as fellowships abroad. Their research and educational work are very well published.
Along with the surgical expertise the clinic provides equally specialized Radiologists, Physiotherapists, Orthotists, anesthetists and a pain management expert. By bringing the experts together the clinic provides personalized holistic care for the patient with joint problems or Sports related injuries.
We believe that a lot of times, surgery is not the most appropriate treatment. If surgery is necessary, it should be tailored to the needs of the patient, using the most reliable technique which provides the best result in the shortest amount of time.
