Quick and easy access to private knee replacement surgery

Knee replacement surgery is a routinely performed operation to replace an arthritic or damaged knee with an artificial joint (prosthesis).  Depending on the condition of the knee, both sides of the knee joint may be replaced (total knee replacement) or only one side (partial knee replacement).  Surgery normally takes up to two hours and patients stay in hospital for 3-5 days. 

Knee replacement surgery is a very successful procedure, bringing relief from pain and restored mobility to the majority of people with debilitating knee conditions.  With NHS waiting lists increasing in many parts of the country, Spire Healthcare offers quick and easy access to the highest quality knee surgery.

Private knee arthroscopy

Knee arthroscopy is a form of keyhole surgery used both to diagnose problems in the knee joint and to treat some of them, repairing damaged cartilage or removing loose pieces of bone or cartilage, for example.  Arthroscopy is normally performed as day surgery and is a less invasive procedure than open surgery, resulting in less pain and bleeding, a lower risk of complications and a faster recovery time.

Although knee arthroscopy is available on the NHS, access is becoming more restricted in some areas, and many people opt for private treatment.

Expert private anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction

Spire Healthcare offers expert surgery for all ligament damage to the knee, however the procedure most commonly performed is repair of the ACL.  The ACL runs from the thigh bone to the top of the shin bone at the knee and is responsible for knee stability.  It is quite often torn if a lower leg is overextended or if the knee is twisted, and ACL damage accounts for 40% of all sports injuries.

Surgery to reconstruct the ACL, most often using a tendon graft from elsewhere in the body, is normally performed arthroscopically.  For most people ACL reconstruction is a very successful procedure to restore knee stability and function, with patient satisfaction scores in the UK around 90-95%.
