This is a novel concept of having your initial assessment by Specialist Orthopaedics surgeon or Allied Health Professional, followed by scan and follow up review by the Surgeon or Allied health professional, all done in a few hours at one appointment. This is a huge boon for patients pressed for time or anxious about their conditions, having the medical management done smoothly at one appointment. This is an unique service, that is not available in the NHS or the Private sector, due to the logistics of organizing it all.
Dr Khan is trying out the concept of patients having their scans explained to them and also provide guidance within his limits of knowledge on the potential management plan. As this will take time and would be limited as a fee-based service, taking 15-30 minutes.
