    There’s an increasing drive among private insurance/health companies to stop funding knee arthroscopy (keyhole surgery) on patients with arthritis. The companies would claim that the surgery doesn’t make any difference, but are they right? This is one of those frustrating situations where the actions of a few have started to impact on the many.

    Why it’s essential to diagnose anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) damage early. Lots of patients who come to Yorkshire Knee Clinic visit us for a delayed diagnosis, often quite some time after the event that caused their knee pain. Occasionally, they’ll have been misdiagnosed with a knee sprain when the issue is far more serious. Unfortunately,Continue Reading

    One day, AI (artificial intelligence) in knee surgery could be a genuine benefit. Right now, it’s more a case of the Emperor’s New Clothes, argues Yorkshire Knee Clinic’s James Newman. We were speaking recently with a patient who was in the process of choosing his knee consultant. Naturally, every knee specialist offers something slightly differentContinue Reading

    As with any medical procedure or product, what counts is the evidence, not the marketing. Knee replacement (or rather, resurfacing) has come a long way in the past decade. You might be tempted to assume that, like most other things in life, the improvement has been driven by IT, and certainly we have seen anContinue Reading

    As waiting times increase, the additional delay caused by the requirement to lose weight may be damaging outcomes for NHS patients. Most of us put off going to the doctor. Whatever the issue, whatever part of the body, self-treatment and a ‘wait and see if it clears up’ attitude inevitably add days, weeks and occasionallyContinue Reading

    For all the advances in knee replacement surgery, there’s one element that’s still stuck in the dark ages. We explore the unfortunate effects of continuing to refer to knee resurfacing as ‘knee replacement’. By the time a patient visits their knee consultant, they will in all likelihood have exhausted the conservative treatment options available. GPsContinue Reading

    20 or so years ago, a knee replacement was something you typically had once, and only when you were past retirement age. So what’s changed? Once, knee replacements were only available to those past retirement age. That left knee consultants having difficult conversations with patients in their 40s and 50s, who didn’t relish the ideaContinue Reading

    (and how to put things right) Some knee injuries happen without warning, perhaps the result of a clumsy football tackle or a fall whilst skiing. They’re not generally the sort of things you can anticipate and plan to avoid. In other cases there may be pre-existing problems with the knee that you could be makingContinue Reading
