We are very pleased at the news that knee arthroscopies and shoulder decompressions are going to be limited on the NHS because we have known for a long time, as a result of research evidence, that the majority of these operations are unnecessary. Our Physiotherapist Lucy Macdonald has been quoted in this article on the BBC online news website saying exactly this.

It goes without saying that the Orthopaedic Consultant Surgeons that we work with are all over the latest research and would never dream of doing unnecessary operations but the fact is that there are many out there that do.
