Date of Birth

Please could you pass on my best regards to David, as I was a patient of his back in 2015, diagnosed with Lateral Facet Overpressure Syndrome. Since then, I have managed to work my way back from a lot of knee trouble to completing this year’s London Marathon. I wanted to share my story as it’s important to show that if I can do this at 47 years ‘young’ then anything is possible for patients who are my age or younger and also suffering comparable knee issues.

If you need to have a knee or hip replacement, your surgeon may have recommended you have a robotic assisted procedure.
Our dedicated joint replacement centres in partnership with Cromwell Hospital and Spire St Anthony’s Hospital, offer the highest standard of clinical excellence for joint replacement.
The Enhanced Recovery Pathway at the Fortius Joint Replacement Centre aims to accelerate and improve all aspects of a patient’s recovery process following surgery.
