At St Mary’s NHS Treatment Centre we offer free NHS treatments to all patients. You are not required to pay if you are an NHS patient and have been referred for treatment by your GP.
We also offer an affordable self pay option for patients who do not have health insurance, or have been told they are ineligible for NHS treatment.
A knee arthroscopy is used to investigate knee problems, including inflammation and injury, or to repair damaged tissue or remove a Baker’s Cyst. An arthroscope – a telescope on a long, thin cord – is inserted through small cuts in the skin. Arthroscopies enable the patient to recover faster from surgery.
Total knee replacement surgery involves replacing diseased or damaged joint surfaces in the knee with metal and plastic components shaped to allow continued motion of the knee.
Along with all Independent Sector healthcare providers we are currently supporting NHS England during the Coronavirus crisis. This has sadly meant that any patients who were scheduled to visit us have had their treatment postponed. While we are not yet able to give patients a revised surgery date, we are doing our utmost to get through the impact of this pandemic and re-open at the earliest opportunity.
