Hips, Shoulders, Knees and Hands!

nuffield eventsA team of 20 orthopaedic surgeons at Nuffield Health Wolverhampton Hospital provide specialist expertise covering the various joints and bones in the body. From hand, elbow & shoulder surgery through to hip & knee replacement surgery, the hospital has an excellent track record in treating bones and joints to return people to return patients to their best level of fitness and mobility.

Depending on your individual needs, you can select the consultant of your choice and the date for treatment. Why wait for your condition to get worse when you can see a specialist right away? The hospital assists the local community through the NHS work it carries out and by providing private healthcare with no waiting lists for those with insurance or who decide to pay for themselves. If you would like to find out more about Hip and Knee or Hand and Shoulder treatment options, throughout June consultants at the private hospital in Tettenhall are hosting free events that anyone is welcome to attend.

Consultant orthopaedic surgeon, Mr Eric Isbister, who practices at the private hospital in Wolverhampton, specialises in hip and knee surgery explains that undergoing hip and knee replacement surgery is now much more comfortable and the stay in hospital is much shorter. “With newer enhanced recovery techniques, patients are up and walking on the same day as they have their surgery. Gone are the days that joint replacement was a really painful process. New anaesthetic and pain relief procedures have enabled early full mobility and have revolutionised the patient experience, so that people recover much more quickly.”

Mr Jae Rhee, an upper limb specialist, who also practices at the private Nuffield Hospital in Wolverhampton treats a wide range of shoulders, elbows and wrists, often damaged through sporting activities. His clinical practice is largely a minimally invasive surgery as well as performing surgery on arthritic joints. Mr Rhee’s keyhole surgery work includes frozen shoulder, rotator cuff, shoulder instability and impingement and joint reconstruction surgery, as well as wrist surgery. Additionally he undertakes open surgery for shoulder replacement and complex hand and wrist surgery. He is happy to provide information to help you make the right choice for treatment.
