Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Knee surgeon Scotland (?PCL revision)

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hello All

I'm looking for any recommendations or advice for knee surgeons in Scotland (excl.Prof MacKay who does not work with AXA).

Complex history of knee ligament damage (MCL, ACL, PCL) and cartilage tears. Unstable knee causing me trouble (probable PCL repair failure, MCL laxity) and I'm looking for surgical advice.

Thanks

I had my hip resurfacing done by Paul Gaston at the Murrayfield Edinburgh.

Excellent hip surgeon, not sure if he does knees but worth a look - he skis and cycles, so understands what fit people want

Thanks for the replies, I will check them out.

Glad they're not Glasgow based as well, and a bit of a falling out with both private hospitals in the area (one nearly killed me with a post operative infection and the other charged me twice!)

Just seen this so don't know if you are still looking. Try John Keating who works at Murrayfield Edinburgh. He has looked after my knee for about 15 years now. Highly recommended.

Snowheads, I was hoping someone would be able to help. My wife has to see a knee surgeon. She saw Mr Bell last time, but he is no longer on the Vitality list of surgeon's. They have given a list of alternative surgeons and I was wondering whether anyone had 1st/2nd hand or any experience of them. Otherwise we are kind of picking blind! The list is:

Parkside Hospital, Wimbledon

Mr Philip A Mitchell

Mr Hugo Guthrie

Mr Adrian Day

Mr Simon Bridle



BMI Syon Clinic, Brentford

Mr Vikas Vedi

Mr Arjuna Imbuldeniya

Thanks in advance.

No idea. Maybe Vitality lowballed the rate?

They are demanding very large reductions in my rates for me to continue to be a "recognised consultant"

Some of the fees they wish to pay are less than would have been paid in 1997.

Some will have no doubt agreed to that rate reduction to be able to receive referrals from Vitality.

Two of the surgeons mentioned in this thread as being recommended by Vitality for a knee are hip replacement/ hip replacement revision surgeons.

I was personally insured with them and just took my whole family off Vitality because they delisted the guy who i wanted to do a minor skin op as he "overcharges".

His fee for the operation - £242. Even when i offered to pay his whole fee they denied me any cover for the procedure at all.
