With a long history in the treatment of orthopaedic problems, The Princess Grace Hospital is notorious for innovation in healthcare. In fact, the hospital has recently become the first in the UK to invest in the MAKO robot for the treatment of hip and knee problems, which is now considered the gold standard for hip and knee replacement surgery.
As healthcare improves and life expectancy increases, it becomes increasingly likely that you will outlive the natural lifespan of your joints. However, the treatment of hip problems is often very successful and even major operations such as total hip replacements now have very positive outcomes. The Orthopaedic Centre offers comprehensive treatment options for hip problems, whether they are caused by a fall, sports injury or natural wear and tear.
Knee problems can be wide-ranging and as such, treatment options will be similarly varied depending on the nature of your injury.
At The Orthopaedic Centre we are experienced in treating the full spectrum of knee problems, from ligament to joint damage. Whether you’ve suffered from a ski injury, hurt yourself playing football or just feel that your knees are struggling to keep up with your active lifestyle as you’ve got older, we can offer advice from first-class medical experts.
Treatment of spinal problems is important both because of the impact of the spine on the rest of the body, and also because back problems are very common. Therefore it is important when seeking treatment to ensure that you find a provider who you can trust, and one with the capacity to treat the full range of back problems, from the relatively minor to those which are more complex.
The Orthopaedic Centre hosts some of the finest neuro-spinal surgeons in London, and is well equipped to diagnose and treat all causes of back pain. The Princess Grace Hospital offers full support for complex surgery, including the provision of full intensive care if needed.
Shoulder and Elbow
Many shoulder and elbow injuries can be treated with physiotherapy. However, more serious injuries may require surgical intervention such as shoulder or elbow reconstruction. Occasionally joint replacement surgery may also be appropriate.
The Orthopaedic Centre offers a full complement of treatment options, from physiotherapy and therapeutic injections, to surgical intervention such as shoulder rotator cuff repair or elbow arthroscopy. Most shoulder and elbow surgery can now be completed using keyhole techniques, improving the speed of recovery.
Foot and Ankle
Foot and ankle treatment requires specialist attention as the ankle joint is quite anatomically complicated. However, in many cases treatment can be very successful and minimally invasive treatment or therapeutic options such as steroid injections can allow patients to get back on their feet quickly.
A number of excellent foot and ankle specialists hold clinics at The Orthopaedic Centre and are supported by physiotherapists from The Princess Grace Hospital.
Hand and Wrist
The Orthopaedic Centre hosts a specialist hand therapy service, which allows for injuries to the hand and wrist to be quickly assessed and for patients to receive appropriate treatment as quickly as possible.
Working closely with hand and wrist consultants, The Orthopaedic Centre is therefore able to offer expert treatment for hand a wrist problems ranging from tendon inflammation and injury, to issues with arthritis, as well as joint injury and skeletal deformities.
