Knee pain can be managed with simple painkillers or physiotherapy. However, for persistent pain or disability, it is important to identify early whether your knee pain may have a more serious cause.
At Kingsbridge Private Hospital, our team of experienced healthcare professionals treat patients of all ages with knee pain, ranging from knee injuries involving ligament and cartilage to more long term arthritic conditions which may require knee surgery.
Within the hospital we can provide consultation, tests, treatment and surgery when required for a range of knee conditions.
Common knee procedures available at Kingsbridge Private Hospital include:
Knee surgery recovery times will depend on the type of treatment your surgeon performs on the knee joint. You should be back to your usual activities six to eight weeks after your operation, depending on how severe your knee problems were.
Some people may be able to return to usual activities sooner than this. If you do heavy physical work as part of your job, you may need a longer time before you can return to work.
Sore knees after knee replacement surgery is common. If you need pain relief, you can take over-the-counter painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen. Always read the patient information that comes with your medicine and if you have any questions, ask your pharmacist for advice.
Your safety and wellbeing is of paramount importance and our experienced team of expert Consultant Surgeons and Nurses ensure you are always in safe hands.
