Please be aware of any excess payments that may be part of your medical insurance cover – you will be expected to pay any outstanding fees not covered by your insurance policy.

Certain outpatient and surgical procedures may not be fully covered (or covered at all) by your insurance company – it is essential that you check with your insurer before undergoing any procedure.

Clinic Appointments

You will be offered an appointment time and our surgeons make every effort to try and keep to that time. However as you may appreciate sometimes appointments may take longer or unexpected events may arise and there may be a delay. It is a balance between keeping to time and offering all our patients a high quality service. Your initial consultation will take approximately 30 minutes.

It is helpful if you could please bring with you:

Referral letter from the GP (if it has not already been sent or faxed by the GP)
Any previous letters or correspondence relating to your orthopaedic problem.
Any relevant X-rays or MRI scans taken previously
Wear shorts or appropriate clothing as it is important to be able to examine the whole leg during the consultation.

In the clinic your surgeon will spend time discussing your symptoms and then examine you, prior to discussing various options for treatment.  You may request a chaperone if required.  You are encouraged to ask questions as it is important that you fully understand your problem and the treatment options – it may be helpful to write down questions before the appointment so nothing is missed.

It may be necessary to take X-rays which can either be performed on the same day or at a later time.  If a referral letter has been received prior to your appointment your surgeon may arrange for appropriate X-rays to be taken before you are seen in the clinic.

MRI, CT and Ultrasound scans are usually performed on another day if needed.

Following the consultation a letter will be sent to your GP and a copy will be sent to you for further reference.
