Services and treatments
Through our extensive network of hospitals and consultants, UKS Medical can arrange all forms of orthopaedic treatments and procedures, including:
Seeing a foot specialist is vital if you’re experiencing severe or chronic foot pain. Problems may be caused by a deformity, tendon damage or arthritis. There are many different types of foot surgery; common operations include foot reconstruction, and forefoot reconstruction to correct bunions, stiff big toe, lesser toe deformities and forefoot pain.
Ankle pain can be caused by many factors, including ankle injuries such as sprains and fractures. Gout, rheumatoid and osteoarthritis can also cause pain in the ankle, as well as Achilles tendonitis and plantar fasciitis, commonly known as “jogger’s heel”.
A sub-specialty of orthopaedic surgery, this type of treatment often involves the repair of damage to the foot hand or ankle which may have occurred to bone, muscle, tendon, nerve, other soft tissue, skin and nails. Common operations include total ankle replacement, Achilles tendon repair and reconstruction and fusion surgery to fight the symptoms of arthritis.
If untreated, hip pain can be severely debilitating, especially in later life. Most hip problems are caused by the wearing of the hip joint, or conditions such as degenerative arthritis and osteoarthritis.
Shoulder pain can indicate a number of medical conditions, including rotator cuff tendonitis and bursitis. These are usually the result of inflammation and irritation caused by a shoulder injury or disease, and if left untreated, can cause further complications and chronic pain.
If you are suffering from knee pain, whether caused by osteoarthritis and other degenerative diseases or by injuries such as sporting or motoring accidents, there are a number of surgeries and treatments available to help ease pain and repair damage.
The elbow functions to move the arm, working either in rotation or like a hinge. There are many conditions that can cause pain of the elbow, including injury, arthritis, bursitis and infection. Common complaints include tendinitis or “tennis elbow” (lateral epicondylitis) or “golfer’s elbow” (medial epicondylitis), both of can be treated with elbow surgery.
A back problem or back pain can indicate a number of medical conditions, including sore muscles and tendons, slipped discs, fractures. Pain will either develop over an extended period of time as a result of bad habits such as poor posture or lifting heavy objects, or be as a result of injury, causing inflammation and irritation. If left untreated, a back problem can cause further complications and chronic pain.
