Booking an appointment with a private orthopaedic surgeon is easy. Simply get in touch to arrange a consultation at a time that suits you. We can ensure that you are able to see an experienced specialist who can provide all of the care that you need.
During your initial consultation with your orthopaedic surgeon, you should expect to spend some time talking about your symptoms and medical history. The doctor will usually perform a physical exam focusing on the affected area. The check up may include tests for your reflexes, limb strength and range of motion. Further tests such as X-rays and MRI or CT scans may need to be arranged and the specialist will also advise you on the next steps, including the available treatment options. The treatment plan might include special exercises to build up your strength and flexibility, sessions with a physiotherapist, and surgery to repair or replace the damaged joint. You will then be able to arrange further consultations with your specialist as necessary.
You can make an appointment with a private orthopaedic surgeon directly or with a referral from another doctor or medical professional. If you are already undergoing treatment for an injury or a condition such as arthritis, you may be advised to see an orthopaedic specialist by your GP, rheumatologist, or physiotherapist. You can also visit your GP to ask for a referral letter if you want to see an orthopaedic surgeon. If you are intending to use health insurance to cover the costs of your care, it is important to check whether a referral is required before you see a specialist.
