This website is designed to help people understand their condition and appreciate the options available. It is regularly updated and has many links to prestigious academic organisations such as the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. If any of the links do not work, please email us and we will remedy this immediately. All of the conditions discussed here and a number of others, I have specialist international training in. As an expert in such areas if you have any questions, or would like to be seen, get your GP to send me a referral. I work hard to ensure all referrals are seen within 4 weeks, and if surgery is required, to perform this, also within 4-6 weeks. Cancellation and emergency appointments and operations can often be organized at very short notice.
