Improving patient care - Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeons
No surgical procedure is without risk. However, we work tirelessly to minimise risk to our patients. From your first appointment at Hampshire Knee through to the end of your treatment, steps are taken to maintain the highest standards of patient care. When complications do arise, they are dealt with swiftly and efficiently, to minimise risk to our patients.
This is our record of post-operative complications over the last 4 years. We aim to annually audit our practice and publish our results.
