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 practised as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in Gloucestershire for more than ten years as a specialist hip and knee surgeon.
Over this time there have been significant advances in the diagnosis and treatment of hip and knee problems.
This site includes a description of each conditions treated, treatment options and the whole process of surgical treatment;
from diagnosis through admission and rehabilitation.
Additional 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 colleagues. 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!
