Arthritis

Arthritis affects people of all ages, in the UK around 10 million people have arthritis. If you’re suffering from joint pain, restricted movement, tenderness or stiffness come and see us. Our expert consultants will be able to guide you to the most suitable treatment ranging from painkillers and NSAIDs to surgical procedures. From Rheumatoid Arthritis affecting hands, feet and wrists to osteoarthritis in the knees, hips or spine our specialist orthopaedic consultants are on hand to relieve pain and reduce swelling.

Ganglion Cyst removal 

A ganglion cyst is a fluid-filled swelling that usually develops near a joint or tendon. The cyst can range from the size of a pea to the size of a golf ball. Our Orthopaedic Surgeon provides a one stop shop removal clinic where he’ll make a medium-sized cut, usually about 5cm long, over the site of the affected joint or tendon. 

This is performed under local anaesthetic where you are awake. The Orthopaedic surgeon will stitch up the wound and apply a bandage which will be placed over the area. This helps keep it clean, reduces the risk of infection and keeps it safe from any accidental bumps. In the incidence of the cyst being removed from your wrist or hand, you may be advised to wear a sling for the first few days. 

This will help keep your arm safe from any accidental knocks and may help reduce swelling and discomfort. It is common to experience some bruising in the area after your surgery, but this should fade quickly. There's also a small possibility of temporary stiffness, swelling or pain afterwards. 

Trigger finger Injection 

Corticosteroids are medicines that can be used to reduce swelling. For your trigger finger injection, the Consultant will inject liquid corticosteroids into the tendon sheath (the membrane that the tendon slides through), at the base of the affected finger or thumb. This is aimed at reducing the swelling of the tendon, allowing the tendon to move freely again. 

This can sometimes happen within a few days of having the injection, but it usually takes a few weeks. The success rate for trigger finger injections shows that it an effective treatment for 50 to 70% of people. However, they're generally less effective in people with certain underlying health conditions, such as diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis. 

A corticosteroid injection can permanently improve trigger finger but, in some cases, the problem can return after treatment. The Consultant will discuss this with you along with the Trigger Finger Release Surgery we offer if that is what is required. The risks of corticosteroid injections for trigger finger are small. Very occasionally, it causes some thinning or colour change in the skin at the site of injection. There's also a very small risk of infection.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

This is a common problem, with individuals who perform strenuous and repetitive hand and wrist motions. Symptoms include difficulty gripping, loss of dexterity, numbness in your hand, pain in your hand, finger or arm. In most instances, we can conduct nerve conduction studies to establish the diagnosis and treat with a course of exercises, acupuncture or surgical treatment. 

Carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms can be treated with corticosteroids, providing temporary pain relief. Carpal tunnel injections or Corticosteroid injections can often be more effective than tablets and can last for up to eight weeks, sometimes longer.

After you have had the injection, there might be some numbness due to the local anaesthetic. It is common to see a temporary increase in your symptoms over one to three days. The carpal tunnel injection can take 24 hours to start working and it may even be a full week before you start to feel the effects.

Total hip replacement

If you’re experiencing reduced mobility and are experiencing pain even while resting, you may have a hip joint that is worn or damaged. We would recommend that you come and see us, as you may require a Total hip replacement. Hip replacements are a common procedure where a damaged hip joint is replaced with an artificial one, the surgery is carried out under general anaesthetic or with an epidural. Most clients after Total hip replacement find they have an improved range of movement and feel a reduction in pain.
