With lots of people preparing for the winter sports season we are seeing more and more patients presenting with knee pain.
If you have injured your knee MHK offer a “Acute Knee Injury Clinic” to get you back on your feet as soon as possible.
This news article from the UK highlights the fact that more and more young patients are having hip replacements:
Hip replacement is a great operation for getting rid of the pain from arthritis and getting active and mobile again.
This great article from Oxford in the UK talks about how some patients can get a better outcome from a partial knee replacement rather than a full knee replacement.
All of the MHK surgeons have undergone extra training in partial knee replacements and are happy to discuss whether or not they might be a benefit for you.
