Don’t let your knee hold you back.

Knee pain, or an inability to trust your knee, can severely restrict your mobility and prevent you from enjoying your day to day life.

Whether caused by general wear and tear, work that exerts extreme pressure on the knees, or a sporting injury, pain and stiffness of the knee that lasts more than a week is a sign of an underlying problem, which if addressed could be remedied.

We’ve created a knee health check package just for you and your family.

Do I need a knee assessment?

Knee problems can manifest in many different ways, but some common symptoms to look out for are:

  • Pain
  • Stiffness
  • Restricted movement
  • Progressive change in leg shape
  • Giving way
  • Inability to trust the knee
  • New onset clicking
  • Locking (where the knee gets intermittently stuck).

If you are experiencing symptoms as a result of trauma, such as a sports injury where you might have felt a ‘pop’ or ‘snap’, this needs urgent investigation to identify and correct the problem, preventing further damage.

Our expertise in diagnosing and treating knee problems

King Edward VII’s Hospital is a world-renowned centre of excellence for orthopaedics, with over 120 years experience in diagnosing and treating knee problems. Our consultant knee specialists are hand-picked as the leaders in their field, who also work at London teaching hospitals and are involved in the very latest clinical research, looking after top athletes and sports people.

Our team includes Orthopaedic Clinical Nurse Specialists, working collaboratively with consultants to ensure patients receive a personal, tailored treatment plan with one to one support before, during and after surgery.

Insured patients

Our knee assessment package is for self-funding patients only. However, if you have private medical insurance, you can still access the same high standards of diagnosis and treatment. We work with all the top insurers, so call us today and book an initial consultation with one of our specialists.

Your insurance plan should cover any diagnostic scans required, but you may be liable to pay an excess or shortfall. It is always advisable to check with your provider first before confirming a booking.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I choose which consultant I see?

Absolutely. Self-funding your treatment enables you to choose when you are seen, and who you are seen by. King Edward VII’s Hospital consultants are among the finest in the UK, so you can be sure you are choosing one of the best for your knee condition.

The list of available consultants for knee health checks are on this web page.

Can I use my private health insurance?

If you have private medical insurance, you can still choose when you are seen and who you are seen by, from the same list of outstanding specialists.

The booking process is a little different. This ‘package’ price has been created for self-funding patients only and is not applicable to patients with private medical insurance.

However, if you have private medical insurance, the costs of consultations, diagnostics and treatment should be covered. Check with your insurance provider that your condition and chosen consultant’s fees are covered as you may have to pay an excess or shortfall, and obtain pre-authorisation before booking. Your insurance provider will likely require a GP referral too.

If you need any help with the process, our team is always on hand. Please call 020 7467 4344.

Do I need a GP referral?

You do not need to have a GP referral for a specialist knee health check, although it would be useful to have one.

How long will the health check take?

On average a surgical consultation is between 20-30 minutes, with another 15 minutes for imaging.

What happens during a knee health check?

The surgeon will take a detailed history about your knee problem, plus any other health conditions, perform a clinical examination, and then – in combination with the X-rays – discuss the likely diagnosis and treatment options.

In what instance might I need a MRI scan?

If your knee problem is likely to be related to a soft tissue problem, such as a ligament injury or meniscal (shock absorber) tear, then an MRI might be required to clarify the diagnosis. This would be charged separately from the health check package.

Do I need to prepare for a knee health check?

It would be useful if you could bring copies of any previous imaging (e.g. x-rays, CTs or MRI scans), and any details you have relating to previous treatment(s).

What do I wear for a knee health check?

The surgeon will want to examine your knee during the consultation, so it is a good idea to bring a pair of shorts. Alternatively we can provide you with a hospital gown.

What are the potential treatment options?

This of course depends on the diagnosis, but in general, treatment can be non-operative in the form of pain killers, injections and physiotherapy, or operative in the form of surgery.

Your surgeon will discuss all the treatment options with you before agreeing on a treatment plan.
