Bone & Joint Pain

We will all suffer from some form of bone or joint pain in our lives, but it is important that we act quickly to manage the condition and prevent it from restricting our lifestyles. Pain in your joints and bones can mean you struggle to play sports or do the simple things in life such as walking and getting up from a chair. Chronic pain can become debilitating by restricting your movements and interrupting your sleep as well as affecting you and your family. But you don’t have to live with it, painkillers can be an option, however long-term and more severe pain may require further treatment.

Improving your condition could be as simple as having non-surgical treatment. If you do require surgery, you can be assured that your treatment will be led by one of our fully qualified specialist consultants and our professional team.

Hip Pain & Surgery

Many people will suffer with pain in their hips; however you don’t have to be one of them! Hip replacement surgery is now a fairly common procedure which can give people a new lease of life and our consultants are highly experienced in performing hip replacement operations.

For many people hip problems may be minor and can be eased with the help of medications. They may also be offered steroid injections into the hip. At Renacres Hospital we can offer Hip Replacement Surgery (surgery to remove the damaged ball and socket of the hip and replace with an artificial ball and socket made of metal, plastic, ceramic, or a combination of these materials) and a Revision of Total Hip Replacement (surgery to replace the whole hip with a new one).

Knee Pain & Surgery

Are you experiencing pain and trouble in your knees? At Renacres Hospital we can offer you care and support, from the diagnosis of your problem through to treatment and rehabilitation.

Knee treatments offered at Renacres Hospital include Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction (surgery to repair the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and stabilise the knee joint), Arthroscopy of the Knee (an arthroscopy allows your surgeon to see inside your knee using a camera inserted through small cuts in the skin) and Knee Replacement Surgery (surgery to remove the damaged surfaces of the knee and replace these with an artificial knee joint made of metal, plastic, ceramic, or a combination of these materials).

Your GP is the first person to approach to advise on whether a hip or knee procedure is required. Most of the hip and knee surgery listed above will normally involve a few days in hospital and a period of recovery at home; during which our dedicated Physiotherapy team is there to help you every step of the way.

If you would like more information and the costs of these procedures please email: orthopaedics@ramsayhealth.co.uk

Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy can play a vital part in injury management and prevention for many disorders and conditions. Physiotherapy is vital after some forms of surgery in order to get you back to your best.

At Renacres Hospital we aim to provide an excellent service to aid recovery by using an autonomous approach to assessment and treatment and strive to prevent recurrence of injury.

The department is well equipped with up to date facilities and provides inpatient rehabilitation following surgery as part of the multidisciplinary team on the ward for conditions such as total hip replacement and total knee replacement. Follow up physiotherapy is also provided in the outpatient department.
