What is the cost of a total knee replacement in London? Do the costs include additional services?
During the most recent lockdown, all NHS hospitals were advised not to see new patients for face-to-face consultations. Furthermore, planned, elective surgery such as knee or hip replacement cannot be performed. If you have been waiting for your procedure for the last few years and have been informed that your operation is cancelled, with a new date unknown, then you are probably very frustrated. Hospital backlog threatens a 2-year wait for your knee operation.
Recently, some of my patients have asked how much it would cost to have their knee replacement done privately in COVID safe manner. After discussions with one of the private hospitals I work at, there is a very affordable fixed fee package for patients that need a total knee replacement.
- Up to 3 night stay
- One Post-op follow-up
- Up to 8 post-op physiotherapy visits
- Post-operative X-rays
- Knee replacement implants
In addition, I use implants that have the one of the best records in the National Joint Registry. This means the revision rates for loosening of the implant is amongst lowest in the country. I perform minimally invasive surgery and my anaesthetist and team use enhanced recovery protocols to ensure you have the best possible recovery after surgery.
The cost for all of the above is £15,000
