The nStride injection - how it can help with osteoarthritis in the knee

Osteoarthritis in the knee has traditionally been managed with steroid injections to relieve pain, and in the end stage, a knee replacement. For younger patients neither of these treatments are ideal in the long term, so could a new treatment called the nStride injection offer a solution? We asked leading consultant orthopaedic surgeon Mr Charles Willis-Owen how the nStride injection works and how it differs from other therapies.

Which hip conditions can you treat using keyhole procedures?

We spoke to leading consultant orthopaedic surgeon Mr Sujith Konan to find out how hip arthroscopy works, what benefits it offers over open surgery and what conditions it can be used for.

Why do people fear knee replacements more than hip replacements?

The most common hand and wrist injuries in sport

Most sports, particularly those involving balls and rackets involve some kind of contact with the hands and fingers. Some sports such as basketball or netball are prone to more hand injuries. It’s quite easy to injure, fracture or dislocate the fingers or knuckles with these sports. If pain and swelling don’t go away after a few days of rest, ice and anti-inflammatories, you should have your fingers or hand checked with an x-ray. Injured joints can stiffen very quickly, and once stiff, are difficult to get back to normal. Orthopaedic surgeon Miss Tanaya Sarkhel tells us more about common hand and wrist injuries.
