MSK Doctors – Bone, Joints & Cartilage Experts

Questions

Consultations

Our Consultations take place at one of our clinics, wherever is most convenient for you. The Consultant will speak to you in a private room where you will be able to discuss your problem and your previous medical history. An examination may be necessary and further investigations may be arranged for that day or at another convenient time. The initial Consultation usually takes 20-30 minutes.

Diagnostic Imaging

The Consultant may deem it necessary for you to have an ultrasound, MRI or X-ray, this may be on the same day as your Consultation or at a convenient time for you. Your scan will be reviewed and reported by a Consultant Radiologist. A follow up appointment will be arranged to discuss the findings.

Follow Up Appointment

After your scan, you will need to book a follow up appointment with the Consultant to discuss your results. Depending on the complexity, your report may be available immediately or could take a few days. Treatment options will be discussed with you which may include further interventions, surgery or referral to another health professional.

Treatments

Your consultant may offer an intervention such as an injection; you will be informed of the alternatives, risks and additional cost.

Non-Surgical Treatments

We believe that surgery is the last option. At MSK Doctors, we offer a range of non-surgical interventions such as bracing, injections and physiotherapy.

Surgery

Surgical procedures will be undertaken at one of the private hospitals where our Consultants operate. The whole procedure will be discussed with you, including risks and benefits and what to expect afterwards.
