This surgical procedure is performed via keyhole surgery using an arthroscope attached to a video camera. It is used to repair damage caused to the shoulder through trauma, wear and tear or damage to the ligaments and tendons.
A bunion is a painful, often inflamed deformity of the big toe joint which usually gets worse over time. Surgical correction commonly involves further procedures rather than only removing the bony lump or the inflamed bursa; such as realignment of the metatarsal bone using metal screws or other fixation techniques.
This develops when the edge of the toenail grows down and cuts into the surrounding skin, causing pain, swelling and/or bleeding. Over the counter remedies usually solve the problem. In severe cases surgery is possible to remove some or all of the nail.
Minimally invasive foot surgery
This includes any surgical procedure on the foot that uses the latest technology to make fewer, smaller incisions, resulting in reduced tissue damage and scarring. Cases can often be treated on a day patient basis.
Minor lumps and bumps removal
Lumps like ganglions beneath the skin can be removed if they are causing pain or difficulty with footwear.
This is a surgical procedure that involves part of a bone being cut to shorten or realign it. It is sometimes performed as part of bunion surgery or to relieve pain in arthritis cases and uses general anaesthetic.
Stiff big toe (hallux rigidus)
This is a form of degenerative arthritis which causes bone deformity, pain and stiffness in the big toe joint. The chronic, painful, limited motion of the big toe joint can be successfully treated surgically.
Toe deformities (hammer toe, claw toe, mallet toe)
Common deformities affecting the small toe joints result in contractures and painful hard skin (corns). This condition can be caused by tight footwear or inflammatory arthritis. Following failed conservative treatment, surgical correction is advised to achieve a more comfortable fit in a normal shoe.
Total ankle replacement
Surgery involves the replacing of diseased or damaged joint surfaces in the ankle with metal and plastic components shaped to allow continued motion of the ankle joint.
“Not only was it considerably cheaper than traditional private hospitals, the CQC rating gave me the reassurance that I could expect high standards of care”.
