At North East London NHS Treatment Centre we offer free NHS treatments to all patients. You are not required to pay if you are an NHS patient and have been referred for treatment by your GP.
This is the surgical reconstruction or replacement of an arthritic joint. Hip and knee replacement are the most common major orthopaedic procedure. The goal is to restore function and relieve pain.
A knee arthroscopy is used to investigate knee problems, including inflammation and injury, or to repair damaged tissue. An arthroscope – a telescope on a long, thin cord – is inserted through small cuts in the skin – enabling the patient to recover faster from surgery.
This surgical procedure involves replacing a patient’s artificial knee joint with a new one. This surgery may also involve the use of bone grafts.
In this surgical procedure, tight structures on the outer part of the kneecap are released to ease knee pain caused by the kneecap being pulled away from its normal alignment.
Please be aware that we are not affected by the NHS announcement to cancel all non-urgent surgery; if you are booked in for an appointment or surgery with us it will still go ahead.
