KNEE SURGERY

“ All my patients stand a very high chance of achieving long-term pain relief and a significant improvement to their mobility, irrespective of their body weight, age or level of their activity.
Mr Trevor Lawrence

HIGH SUCCESS RATE 

The National Joint Registry (NJR) is the authority that collects and analyses data on joint replacement surgery in England and Wales. It monitors the performance of each orthopaedic surgeon, as well as the effectiveness of joint replacement implants. ​

Since the 2009 period covered by the National Joint Registry (NJR), only one per thousand of Mr Lawrence's patients needed repeat surgery due to implant loosening or wear.

  • UK average revision (repeat surgery) rate: 1.9%  over 10years.

  • Mr Lawrence's rate: 0.7% over 10 years.
     

  • Since 2009, Mr Lawrence performed close to 600 knee operations, out of which only 4 ever required repeat surgery.
     

  • To date, over the 10 years covered by the National Joint Registry data, none of Mr Lawrence's patients have required revision surgery for loosening or wear of their joint replacement

OUTSTANDING RESULTS 
The NJR graph below, covering period 1st April 2018 - 31 March 2021, shows that Mr Lawrence has performed 21% more Primary knee operations than the UK National Average.

It also shows Mr Lawrence's knee revision/ repeat surgery rate due to a complication, to be nearly a 1/3 lower than the UK National Average.

PATIENT SATISFACTION 

Since 1999 Mr Lawrence has carefully monitored the outcomes of his patients. In over 1000 patients assessed in the clinic:
 

  • 97% say that 'Pain relief was good to excellent'.

  • 96% say that 'Satisfaction is good to excellent'.

  • 97% say 'Yes, I would recommend the operation'.

These results confirm a high degree of satisfaction and success following treatment under the care of Mr Lawrence.

RETURN TO FULL PHYSICAL & SPORTING ACTIVITY 

Traditionally, patients are told not to undertake impact activities following total hip replacement. Since 1999 when Mr Lawrence first started monitoring the outcome of his patients, he observed that some of his younger patients have returned to jogging 15-20 kilometres or playing tennis and 5 aside football. So far, these activities have not resulted in wear or loosening of the hip replacements and Mr Lawrence now allows his patients to return to virtually all activities following surgery.​
