Treatments

I provide private consultations, out patient  treatment  and surgery for orthopaedic and trauma conditions at the Nuffield Hospital, Leamington Spa and at The BMI Meriden hospital in Coventry.

 

Consultations

The initial consultation is a critical step in the path to an exact diagnosis of any condition you may have and the treatment that is required.

I will ask you a number of questions about the condition you have, such as the physical symptoms, when it started, when it affects you the most, the changes of the condition over time, the location of any pain, stiffness, swellings and the difficulties the condition is causing. I may ask about generalised symptoms such as fatigue, depression and sleep.  I may also ask about previous illnesses and your general background.  All information you provide is confidential.

I will want to get a complete picture of the condition and its effect on your life so that I can provide you with the best possible diagnosis and advice.

A clinical examination will almost certainly be needed . Please feel free to bring a carer or chaperone along if you wish.

Depending on the complexity of your condition I may need to undertake some tests and arrange a follow up consultation.  In the majority of cases, I can provide a diagnosis on the first consultation.

Once we have a clear diagnosis I will be able to discuss the treatment options with you.  At this stage you can choose to continue with private treatment or I can refer you to the NHS.

Initial consultations will cost £200 and approximately £100 for any follow up consultations if required.  These fees should be paid by your insurance company or you can pay yourself if you do not have private medical insurance.
