Pain relief and Independence
Hip and Knee joint replacements allow relief from debilitating pain and a return to independence for individuals suffering from severe arthritis. Many advances have been made in both hip and knee joint replacement, and they are very successful, proven, predictable and durable treatments for end-stage arthritis. They must be performed by surgeons who are expert in performing the surgery and who understand the options that are available.
We offer a complete hip and knee joint replacement service for patients of all ages including:
- all types of replacement
- mini-incision (key-hole) procedures
- treatment of the most complex arthritis cases
- revision or "re-do" replacements for those who have failing implants or implants that have developed complications.
For further details about hip and knee implants you can refer to the hip surgery and knee surgery sections of this site.
We select the best prosthesis and bearing surface (metal, ceramic, oxinium) for our patients based on their activity level, bone quality (normal, osteopenic or osteoporotic), anatomy and age. In a sense we aim to provide as bespoke a replacement as possible. Our aim is to implant a prosthesis that will be successful, last as long as possible and allow as straightforward a revision (re-do) as possible should this ever become necessary. We are always able to explain the rationale for our decisions.
What our patients say
Operation and aftercare first class
Although I was naturally apprehensive on learning I needed a new hip, this was dispelled after a positive consultation with Mr Sood.
The operation was a great success and I am once again partaking in all my previous activities including walking, cycling and skiing.
Both the operation and aftercare I received have been first class.
Nothing but praise for results achieved
I would like to say how much I appreciated the informative guidance I received from Mr Sood during the initial consultation for my knee problem, and the care from him and the team at all stages before and after the operation for my replacement knee. From our first meeting I felt great confidence in every aspect of my treatment by him, and would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone for his specialised skills.
My friends say I am now back to ‘my old self’ and I can now make much more of my life. I have nothing but praise for the results which Mr Sood has achieved with my new knee!
Wonderful skill and care
I am very pleased to be able to thank Mr Sood for the wonderful skill and care he gave me when I had my hip replacement. He always had time to listen and explain things which I appreciated. I now have no pain, hooray!
Walking a pleasure again…many thanks
Mr Sood, the pain walking made my life difficult both working and leisure activities due to my right hip. My replacement has enabled walking, standing and driving to be a pleasure again. Many thanks.
Excellent job…a brilliant surgeon
I am a fitness instructor and my life and work were severely affected when I developed arthritis of both hips. I had severe stiffness and pain. I was very worried about how successful hip replacement surgery might be and especially if I would be able to carry on as a fitness instructor afterwards. A friend strongly recommended that I see Mr Sood. He explained everything to me and advised that I would need both my hips replaced. He encouraged me to think about things and answered all my questions. Since Mr Sood replaced both my hips I feel that my movement is perfect and that he has performed an excellent job. I would recommend him to everyone who would need this operation done.
I do believe he is a brilliant surgeon!
Bless your Healing Hands
My grateful thanks to you for doing such a wonderful job with my hip replacement. Not surprising as you really are the “expert” in your field! Bless your healing hands.
Couldn’t have been in better hands
Dear Mr Sood, we would like to thank you for all the care and attention that you gave to Peter. He couldn’t have been in better hands.
Caring and capable surgeon
I was suffering from left hip arthritis. This was very painful and limited walking, gardening and other daily activities. I was very satisfied with the care that I received and well looked after. Mr Sood is a very caring and capable surgeon and a pleasure to meet and talk to about my condition. It was the second operation performed by Mr Sood as I had my right hip replaced successfully a few years ago. I would recommend Mr Sood to others and have already done so.
We offer hip resurfacing, bone-preserving small stems (neck prostheses), hybrid and uncemented replacements.
We offer total and partial knee replacement. The latter includes mini-incision medial unicompartmental and patellofemoral replacement.
Revision (re-do) Hip and Knee replacement
Mr Sood is highly experienced in the whole spectrum of modern revision techniques and chooses the most appropriate techniques and implants based on the challenge presented by the individual case. He performs approximately 30 revision cases per year, a proportion of which have had revision procedures performed before in other units. He specialises in the most complex reconstructions. He has performed over 250 revision procedures to date.
