While the MSK Doctors private clinic is known for having some of the top hip specialists in the UK, it can often be difficult for patients to access a doctor promptly, before their injury worsens. The new self-referral program allows any patient to see a specialist at their own convenience and also includes access to innovative diagnostic tools, such as the only Open MRI scanner in the county.
To book an appointment, patients can visit the MSK Doctors website and click “Book Online” to view a list of available times and dates. To ensure each patient can access the care they need promptly, the clinic has partnered with several other local specialists and does not use waiting lists. Though the private clinic has a fully staffed in-house medical team, its partnerships also allow it to offer fast access to innovative diagnostic tools, and doctors from a wide range of disciplines.
An MSK Doctors team member will work with patients to determine the most effective treatment for their condition, choosing from a wide range of traditional treatments, advanced techniques, and minimally invasive regenerative procedures. In many situations, the MSK Doctors team can offer techniques not available yet through the NHS, such as the SPAIRE hip replacement procedure.
This technique has been thoroughly researched and tested and has been found to offer significantly improved results because the surgery itself causes less damage to the patient. With the SPAIRE technique, MSK Doctors can provide a complete hip replacement, without requiring the patient to have any mobility restrictions after their operation.
The SPAIRE procedure “spares” several important muscles and tendons from being cut, and as a result, most patients heal significantly faster. This technique has also been shown to reduce the risk of post-surgical dislocations, even though patients are able to move freely after their operation, with no restrictions.
