Surgical Treatment Options
S.P.A.I.R.E. is the surgical approach used by Prof Paul Lee (after much review) for a total hip replacement. It offers you the functional benefits of the posterior approach, facilitating early mobilisation with reduced risk of dislocation (Hanly et al 2017). This technique has the benefit of avoiding cutting the abductor complex as well as preserving both gemelli, obturator internus and piriformis tendons (quadriceps coxae).
For knee replacement surgery, the GoldenSteps with its medial-pivot design replaces the native structure of the knee regaining back normal motion and stability of the joint. With over 95% patient satisfaction and 98.8% survivorship at 17 years.

ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) reconstruction usually involves significant disruption and damage to the knee and a long period of rehabilitation. At The Sports & Injury Clinic, Prof Paul Lee’s approach of a single hamstring harvest involves strengthening the pre-stretched tendon biomechanically thus reducing recovery time. Superior fixation ensures an stronger stability of the ACL for return to play activities and a reduced risk of re-injury.
