London Knee Clinic partners with a team of highly experienced Consultant Anaesthetists who undertake all relevant forms of anaesthesia. They are skilled in general anaesthesia, intravenous sedation, and the use of regional anaesthesia such as epidural injections, spinal injections and nerve blocks.

All patients are seen prior to surgery by our anaesthetists to carry out a pre-operative assessment. During this they evaluate your fitness for anaesthesia, request appropriate investigations and plan the most appropriate anaesthetic technique. After the operation our nursing staff liaise with our anaesthetists to ensure that any pain caused by your operation is well controlled. They also make sure that any problems related to the anaesthetic, such as nausea, are dealt with and that you are progressing well during recovery.

Anaesthesia in the United Kingdom is carried out by doctors who have undergone a long period of postgraduate training in several differenthospitals and have passed the appropriate examinations in anaesthetics. The Consultant Anaesthetists working with London Knee Clinic all have current or previous Consultant appointments in Anaesthesia in London NHS Hospitals. They are all on the Specialist Register for Anaesthetics of the General Medical Council, are Fellows of the Royal College of Anaesthetists. Finally, and are fully accredited with all the UK Health Insurance Companies.
