You will be offered an appointment time and Mr Spalding makes every effort to try and keep to that time. However as you may appreciate sometimes appointments may take longer and there may be a wait. It is a balance between keeping to time and offering everyone a high quality of service.
It is helpful if you could please bring with you:
- Referral letter from the GP if it has not already been sent by the GP.
- Any previous letters or correspondence relating to your knee problem.
- Any relevant xrays or MRI scans
- Shorts or appropriate clothing as it is important to be able to examine the whole knee and leg during the consultation.
In clinic Mr Spalding will spend time discussing your symptoms and then examine your knee(s) prior to discussing various options for treatment.
It may be necessary to take xrays which can either be performed on the same day or at a later time. MRI scans are usually performed on another day if required.
