Orthopaedic Treatments Non-Surgical
There are many conditions that our Orthopaedic Consultants care for which may be treated through non-surgical means. Highgate Private Hospital offers innovative solutions which could result in avoiding surgery.
At Highgate Private Hospital Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is available for the treatment of a number of Orthopaedic conditions, including osteoarthritis, tendonitis and many soft tissue sports injuries.
PRP, which is also referred to as ACP (Autologous Concentrated Plasma), is where a concentrated mixture of platelets from your own blood is used to treat a number of Orthopaedic conditions. Platelets naturally occur in your own blood and part of their function is to stimulate healing.

nSTRIDE is a new treatment for osteoarthritis of the joints, particularly in the knee. It is known as an ‘autologous’ protein injection, meaning it contains proteins that have been taken from your own body. nSTRIDE involves taking a blood sample from your arm and processing the blood to separate out a protein-rich liquid. This liquid is then injected back into your knee joint to help alleviate the symptoms of osteoarthritis.
