Mr K Sehat, Consultant Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgeon at Nottingham University Hospital specialises in conditions of the hip and knee and performs surgery including hip replacements. Younger patients with 'soft tissue' conditions such as inflammation of the tendons or hip impingement can benefit from injections and specialised physiotherapy as well as surgery when indicated.

Hip replacement surgery:
There are several forms of arthritis which result in wearing away of joint cartilage and can cause severe pain, stiffness and disability. Patients affected by hip arthritis can benefit from hip replacement surgery when appropriate.
Hip replacement surgery is dependable it terms of restoring function and relieving pain. At The Nottingham Clinic, the emphasis is on avoiding complications and ensuring durability. The risk of infection affecting hip replacements performed by Mr Sehat is less than 1 in 800 and the overall incidence of requiring revision surgery is half that of the national average. We use computer guided alignment for maximal accuracy in the surgery.
We use hip implants that are most suited to each situation. All hip replacement implants are subject to occasional failures and requirement for re-do surgery. We mostly use the 'Excia/Plasma' implant with a fully ceramic bearing which has a success rate recorded in the National Joint Registry of 97.7% at 12 years after surgery which compares favourably with the average of of 95.8% for all other hip replacements. Mr Sehat has performed over 900 hip replacements over the last 12 years with 98.9% of hip replacements remaining free of the need for revision. The majority of patients can expect their hip replacement using this system to be a lifelong solution.

Non-arthritic hip pain:
Some hip conditions can cause pain in younger and active patients. Diagnosis can be challenging requiring high resolution specialist scanning techniques, multi-specialty assessment together with sports medicine and physiotherapy specialists and guided injections. Following diagnosis, most cases can be treated with appropriate therapy. Surgery is available in some situations such as for ‘cam deformity’ of the hip causing severe pain with everyday activities.

Mr K Sehat, Consultant Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgeon at Nottingham University Hospital specialises in conditions of the hip and knee and performs surgery including knee replacements and keyhole knee surgery for cartilage problems.
Younger patients with partial arthritis of the knee may benefit from re-alignment surgery (Osteotomy).
Injections and specialised physiotherapy are administered as required.

Knee replacement surgery:

There are several forms of arthritis which result in wearing away of joint cartilage and can cause severe pain, stiffness and disability. Patients affected by knee arthritis can benefit from knee replacement surgery when appropriate.
At the Nottingham Clinic, Mr Sehat employs 'Computer Navigation Technology' for maximal accuracy and individualisation of the surgery for optimal function.
All knee replacement implants are subject to occasional failures and requirement for re-do surgery. We mostly use a novel 'Advanced Surface Columbus' implant with a ceramic coating. The results recorded in the Australian National Joint Registry show success of 98.3% at 5 years after surgery which compares favourably with the average of of 95.9% for all other knee replacements. (Data from the English Joint Registry is not currently available).
Mr Sehat has performed over 300 knee replacements using this system since 2012 and to date 99.3% have not required further surgery. The majority of patients can expect their knee replacement using this system to be a lifelong solution with satisfactory function for everyday activity.

To complement knee replacement surgery, we are introducing the 'BPM pathway' electronic system for optimal rehabilitation and physiotherapy at home before and after surgery.

Mild and moderate knee arthritis:
Although knee replacement surgery is performed for cases of severe arthritis, for many patients with lesser degrees of arthritis, the treatment of choice is to prolong the durability of their own joint. Joint injections and physiotherapy are provided in a multi-disciplinary team setting following initial assessment in Mr Sehat’s clinic.
In some situations, realignment surgery (also known as osteotomy) for moderately severe knee arthritis may be appropriate. This may be indicated for patients under the age of 55 with arthritis affecting only one part of the knee and who are not overweight. This surgery is performed using an advanced system involving CT scan planning and custom made templates for maximum accuracy.

Knee cartilage damage / keyhole surgery: 
If an otherwise healthy knee without arthritis has sustained damage to cartilage, there are potential options in terms of daycase keyhole surgery to remove or repair loose 'meniscus' cartilage or to replace lost surface (or articular) cartilage.
The treatment for articular cartilage replacement known as 'Chodrosphere' is applicable in certain situations and is a recent technological development, having been endorsed by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence in 2018. This treatment is being introduced exclusively in the East Midlands at Nottingham University Hospital. Chondrosphere is applicable to patients without appreciable arthritis and who are not overweight and with isolated areas of cartilage loss from injury, experiencing pain and swelling.

Information on covid-19


Information on covid-19
During the COVID-19 pandemic, specific considerations apply:

Our facilities are now practicing specific hygiene measures and are supplied with material to minimise the risk of Coronavirus transmission to the most vigorous standards for healthcare facilities.
We are able to offer consultations and treatments including surgery currently with safeguards in place.
However, whilst the virus is prevalent in the community, there is still a risk which needs to be taken into consideration.
We all need to minimise our movements to help control the spread of the virus. Attending for healthcare needs is permitted, however, at the present time, please only seek treatment for concerning, painful and debilitating conditions which justify the additional risk from the virus.
You have the option of booking an initial telephone appointment to discuss your condition followed by a physical attendance if required.

Joint injections for pain:
Injection of steroid for pain relief in arthritic joints carries a possible small risk of increasing susceptibility to infection, including COVID-19, though this has not been proven to necessarily be the case. Initially in the pandemic steroid injections were restricted, however, the risk, if any, is now thought to be very small and injections are available in our clinic. Nevertheless, you should take this into account and proceed on the basis of how painful your condition is. For further information please see: Steroid injection and COVID-19

Surgical procedures:
If a patient was to become ill with COVID-19 at the time of surgery or just after, the illness may be more severe. This is because surgery and anaesthetic makes the body more susceptible to infections. For otherwise healthy people having smaller operations, the additional risk is likely to be very small but if you need surgery, an individual risk assessment will be carried out and a detailed discussion will take place prior to arranging your surgery. Depending on the surgery, you may be asked to self-isolate for one week prior to the date of surgery to minimise the risk of having potentially picked up the virus and we will perform a COVID test before proceeding.
