Have you had gradually worsening pain and stiffness in your knee over months or years? Is there swelling and a change in the shape of your knee? Your pain may now be severe.
Sports Knee Injuries
Have you twisted your knee playing sport or had a fall at work. Your knee may swell, give way or lock. Are you struggling with pain that comes on during or after sport, interfering with your training and performance?
Do you have pain and stiffness in your hip, buttock or groin. Are you limping and struggling to get your shoes and socks on?
What should you do if you have knee pain?
Think back 5, maybe 10 years or more.
Did you ever really think about your knees? Maybe you did, but often people don’t. It’s something we take for granted, but our mobility depends upon our knees.
It doesn’t take long to realise that increasing pain is going to lead to a lack of mobility, discomfort, and a struggle to do the day to day things we all do, often without a second thought.

Just a note to thank you so much for all your help over the last 18 months.
Thank you so much for looking after me and giving me a lovely new hip.
Thank you so much for taking such good care of me and giving me my first new knee. I am actually looking forward to seeing you again for the second one. I am not at all nervous about it now.
Mum and I would like to thank you so much for all your care and attention over the last 10 months with her leg. We have been very pleased with your friendliness and approach-ability. We are so glad to have met you and hope all goes well for you and your family in the future.
Thank you so very much for performing a successful replacement of my knee. I am now back to normal (after only 6 weeks!)
Can I also just ask you to pass onto Mr Pavlou my sincerest thanks. This weekend I took part in a 10mile road race, the longest distance race I have run since last year and I was pain free during and after the event. I genuinely didn’t think I would be able to do this again so I am very grateful for the treatment.
