We offer a wide range of procedures, at competitive, pre-confirmed prices that include your operation, consultant's fees (both surgeon and anaesthetist), nursing care, accommodation, physiotherapy, medication, and aftercare - leaving you free to relax knowing there won't be any hidden extras for the healthcare you need.
Joints and Limbs - Orthopaedics
The meniscus is an important structure in the knee joint and is positioned between the thigh and the shin bone. The loss of the meniscus (either due to injury and gradual degradation in the joint or as a result of necessary surgery if it cannot be repaired) can lead to constant pain, swelling feeling of instability and the progression of osteoarthritis.
To preserve the meniscus, we try to repair the meniscus whenever possible. However, when there is no meniscal tissue left or only a remnant is left in the knee and the patient has symptoms, then a Meniscal Allograft Transplantation ( MAT) is required. For further information, please visit www.meniscaltransplant.com
At Bridgend Clinic, we offer various surgical techniques to repair the meniscus and also perform MAT.
Mr Amit Chandratreya (Knee Specialist) is well trained and experienced in the MAT technique and is one of the few surgeons in the country to offer this procedure.
At Bridgend Clinic we also offer biological treatment for knee symptoms mostly arising as a result of arthritis. Mr Chandratreya is one of the founding members of the Biological Knee society and further details can be found at www.biologicalkneesociety.uk. Treatment details such as bone marrow aspirate can be found at www.celltherapy.wales.
