Sevenoaks Medical Centre has a team of specialists. They provide quick assessment, intervention and effective treatment for a wide range of common and complex musculoskeletal conditions.
Along with our patient-centric approach to care, our investment in state-of-the-art equipment and our exceptional in-house support team, we have a team of consultants in orthopaedic medicine and surgery.
Using the latest orthopaedic procedures, we work with highly skilled consultants, who can diagnose and treat musculoskeletal trauma, degenerative diseases and sports injuries, as well as infections, tumours and congenital disorders. At Sevenoaks Medical Centre, we also have the skills, knowledge and experience to help patients with multiple stages of arthritis. In the event that surgery is needed this will be done in a hospital.
Our talented team is able to reduce diagnosis and recovery time for our patients, using the latest imaging techniques and minimally invasive surgical techniques. Clinical consultations, diagnostic tests and treatments can often be done on the same day.
