Orthopaedic Specialists brings together leading Specialist Knee Surgeons, Professor Adrian Wilson and Mr Raghbir Khakha, who work as a team to offer patients the very latest in knee replacement surgery.
Having two surgeons working in harmony during your knee replacement operation means you’ll have the benefit of two rather than one surgeons’ expertise and will have a shorter operation.
If you need both knee joints replaced, this can be done as a single operation, as in the case of Ryan and John. John was the first patient to have two simultaneous knee replacements at The Wellington Hospital in London.
Professor Wilson and Mr Khakha have developed a unique method of of relieving discomfort after a knee replacement by working in conjunction with their anaesthetist team during the operation to deliver pain relieving injections. These significantly reduce the pain, swelling and stiffness immediately following a knee replacement operation, which allow patients like Ryan to get active, pain free very quickly.

After their operation, patients are provided with a new and innovative cryotherapy device and this, in conjunction with the new anaesthetic technique have revolutionised patient recovery. Cryotherapy, sometimes known as cold therapy, is the local or general use of low temperatures in medical therapy. Physiolab® gives knee replacement patients amazing results and is helping them to recover much more quickly. Professor Wilson and Mr Khakha are working closely with Physiolab on further research and development.
