Acute knee clinic
What is the ‘Acute Knee Clinic’?
I run a clinic specifically for patients with an acute knee injury. The aim of the clinic is to see you as promptly as possible following an injury to initiate appropriate management in order to facilitate an early return to activity.
Why is the clinic exclusively for acute knee injuries?
It is important due to the nature of the knee joint that all acute cases of knee injury are promptly assessed, diagnosed and treated in order to obtain the best long term outcomes for patients, both athletes and non-athletes.

Appropriate candidates include any patients who have recently injured their knee, for example, due to a weekend sports injury, a fall or similar.
