After many years of drawing pictures for my patients to explain the diagnosis and treatment of hip and knee problems, I have been persuaded to make a web site.
I have practiced as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in Gloucestershire for more than ten years and I have seen many changes in the services available to patients.
There has been a move to treat patients closer to home.
Local care is highly valued by patients and in Gloucestershire we are well served by a network of community hospitals.
This site describes both the NHS and Private clinics available to access my services in Gloucestershire. There is a description of the conditions treated, alternative therapies and the whole process of surgical treatment; from diagnosis through admission and rehabilitation.
Additionally the site contains teaching material as a reference specifically for busy General Practitioners, Physiotherapists, Nurses and other medical professionals.
The information contained is advisory and should only be interpreted by those already trained to care for patients.
My aim is to provide high quality information for Patients and General Practitioners. I hope you find the resulting pages informative and helpful, I will of course still put pen to paper for those who prefer a hand drawn "Holt" original!
