Who are the best knee surgeons in London?

With the publication of surgeon and clinic outcome data published in the National Joint Registry (NJR), a lot of the guess work required for finding out how good your doctor is, is removed. 

Knee replacement operations are often presented as a package of services. These packages sometimes consist of 3 elements, as follows:

  • preoperative functional assessment and planning,
  • intra-operative navigation, and
  • postoperative analysis and assessment.

The more advanced clinics are now also including 'Rapid Recovery".

If you only have a simple knee problem all this may sound overly complicated, especially if you are one of those people who assume that all operations work out well in the end anyway. However, the outcome data from the NJR shows something different. If you place a high value on your health then all the small investments in technology, experience and incremental improvements in surgical approaches that make an excellent outcome more certain, is certainly worth consideration.
