It is important to have an early detailed assessment by a Sports Medicine Doctor – sometimes it is essential to have surgery early, whereas in other conditions you should exhaust other options first, only having surgery if other therapies have not worked.
When surgery is required, it still should be seen as part of the treatment plan. A supervised physiotherapy rehabilitation programme is essential following surgery.
Orthopaedic Surgeons have all now sub-specialised, i.e. they operate on one specific part of the body eg. Orthopaedic Knee Surgeons, Orthopaedic Shoulder Surgeons, Orthopaedic Spinal Surgeons etc.
At the Ulster Sports Medicine Clinic you will get a specialist sports medicine assessment to determine if surgery may be required for your condition.
When you have a sports injury or musculoskeletal condition it is essential you get an early accurate diagnosis. I feel I am best placed to assess your condition, review any treatment you may have had to date and give you appropriate advice on further management.

I have close links to experienced orthopaedic surgeons who I will refer you to, if appropriate, for an expert orthopaedic opinion.
