MEDICAL & PATIENT CARE EXCELLENCE SINCE 1999
“ All my patients stand a very high chance of achieving long-term pain relief and a significant improvement to their mobility, irrespective of their weight, age or level of their activity. ”
Mr Trevor Lawrence
HIGH SUCCESS RATE
Since 2009 period covered by The National Joint Registry (NJR), only one per thousand 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.
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.
The National Joint Registry (NJR) collects information on joint replacement surgery and monitors the performance of joint replacement implants. NJR's graph below shows Mr Lawrence's knee revision/ repeat surgery rate to be only a 1/3 of the UK National Average.
PRIMARY surgery = patients undergoing 1st-time KNEE replacement.
REVISION surgery = patients needing 2nd KNEE operation due to a complication.
