Schoen Clinic. Hello You.

What knee conditions do we treat at Schoen Clinic London?

Why does your knee hurt?

As one of the largest weight-bearing joints in your body, the knee is uniquely vulnerable to the effects of both age-related wear and tear as well as an acute injury. As with all the joints in our body, the knee is a highly complex articulation between three bones, all covered with a very specialised cushioning material, called articular cartilage. All joints are held in place not just by the inherent stability of the way the bones fit together but also by ligaments and the surrounding muscles. In the knee, we have additional help from the meniscal cartilages which not only create stability but also add to the protective shock-absorbing effect of the surface or articular cartilage.

The causes of knee pain are too numerous to mention, however the usual result of injury, whether it be through gradual aging, chemical imbalance, infection, or acute trauma, is inflammation.

Our job is to help find out what exactly is causing your pain and then create a clear plan as to how we can help.

How we can help you?

Every year in the UK, 220,000 people undergo hip or knee surgery. This number of operations will only incr­ease as we as a population live longer together with our greater ambitions and expectations for staying fit and mobile.

Our team of world-class experts will advise and support you in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of your knee condition; providing innovative solutions using groundbreaking techniques.

Our aim is to help you feel better and recover faster.


Surgery is not always the first option

Surgery must always remain the treatment of last resort once all the less invasive therapies have been considered and or exhausted. Conservative treatments can ease pain and allow for a good level of mobility within the knee, in cases of degenerative knee disorders like osteoarthritis, sometimes the best solution is physiotherapy to simply strengthen the muscles. Equally following a knee injury, meniscal cartilage tears and ligament ruptures can often benefit from a trial period of conservative treatment. Where this approach does not work the option for surgery remains.

With some of the UK’s most highly respected knee specialists at Schoen Clinic London, you can be confident knowing that you will get the right treatment. Working as part of a multidisciplinary team  with our physiotherapists, sports medicine doctors and pain specialists means that the decisions are taken together with all options available.
