Though most companies are now back to “business as usual,” in some industries, the effects of the pandemic can still be seen, such as in healthcare. This recently expanded fast-access program launched by MSK Doctors can help patients to see top musculoskeletal specialists for treatment, without adding any burden to the public healthcare system.

By combining a no-waiting-list policy with an option to book appointments online, the private clinic now allows any patient to see a musculoskeletal specialist, even if they do not have a referral from their GP. Through partnerships with several local clinics, MSK Doctors provides a full range of services, from initial diagnostic scans to surgical interventions and non-surgical regenerative therapies.
With faster access to diagnostics, innovative surgical techniques, and a full team of in-house specialists, the private clinic helps to reduce the wait time for a diagnosis, and the patient’s overall recovery time. One example of this can be seen with the clinic’s SPAIRE hip replacement technique, which is a new surgical procedure that is only available from a few specialists around the world.
Using the SPAIRE procedure, patients can have complete hip replacement surgery, with none of the traditional mobility restrictions, and with a significantly reduced healing time. This is because Prof. Paul Lee, the clinic’s SPAIRE specialist, can perform the operation without damaging several important muscles which would normally be cut during a traditional hip replacement surgery.
Since the new procedure causes less damage to the patient’s muscles, it also reduces the risk of dislocations during the recovery period and makes it easier to perform normal daily activities. After the procedure, most patients can return home on the same day, with no restrictions on their mobility.
A spokesperson explained, “Research has shown that the quadriceps coxae is not just an external rotator and is the primary abductor and extensor for the hip joint in a 90 flexed position, which means it has a major effect on one-legged and weight-bearing rising and propulsive motions. These muscles are essential every time a patient tries to get up from a chair.”
