Expertise and private orthopaedic treatment offered
Mr Auld treats the full range of knee and hip problems and has particular expertise in the following areas:
Keyhole surgery of the knee - arthroscopy Arthroscopy, commonly called ‘keyhole surgery’, has become a safe, widely used technique for diagnosis and treatment of many conditions affecting joints such as the knee. Usually performed as a day case, the patient is discharged from hospital within 12 hours of the surgery.
Sports injury of the knee
Ligament and cartilage injuries are common, particularly in sports such as football, rugby and netball. Rapid diagnosis and treatment ensures an optimal outcome. When indicated, surgery is usually in the form of arthroscopy, although complex ligament injuries may need more major intervention.
Hip and knee replacement - arthroplasty
Hip or knee replacement is indicated in cases of severe joint damage, usually as a result of arthritis, which is causing very significant pain and poor quality of life. Some hip and knee replacements wear out after many years, and may then need to be revised to a new one.
Cruciate ligament reconstruction
This surgery is performed arthroscopically, most often using two of the patient's hamstring tendons, in order to reconstruct the torn ligament which is causing the patient's knee to collapse under them during twisting activities.
Physiotherapy and rehabilitation
Physiotherapy is an essential part of the recovery process in many injuries, and after surgery to the hip and knee. With the help of a sports physiotherapist, a patient can expect to maximise the benefits of the surgery that has been performed, whilst avoiding activities which might put their recovery at risk.
Number of orthopaedic procedures carried out per year
Mr Auld has significantly lower than average rates of post operative infections and other complications in his hip and knee replacement practice (reference: Dr Foster database).
