A new fast-access program launched by the private MSK Doctors clinic in London allows clients to see hip replacement specialists, to diagnose existing problems, consult about the optimal treatment options, or access the preferred treatment directly, without being put on a waiting list.

To ensure all clients have equal access to their specialists, the MSK Doctors clinic does not require a referral from a GP, or use waiting lists for any of its services. Clients can schedule their own appointments directly, either over the phone or through the clinic’s website, for a wide variety of consultations, diagnostic scans, and treatments.
The clinic offers several alternatives that are not currently available through the NHS, though they have been thoroughly tested, researched, and approved as both safe and effective. This includes an update to the traditional hip replacement technique, which has been shown to reduce or eliminate the mobility restrictions usually required of patients after their surgery.
The new technique, called the SPAIRE method, is similar in many ways to the traditional surgery, except that it allows the surgeon the complete the entire procedure while causing less injury to the client. Using this technique, a specialist from MSK Doctors can reduce or eliminate damage to the abductor complex, and preserve both gemelli, obturator internus and piriformis tendons.
While this method is not yet available in most public clinics, due to the advanced training it requires, Prof. Lee, the founder of MSK Doctors, is considered to be one of the leading experts in this technique. Prof. Lee has published several research papers on the topic, and it has become the clinic’s preferred hip replacement method whenever possible.
Though the SPAIRE technique cannot fully eliminate the surgical injuries required to fully replace a hip, it has been shown to help clients access their full range of movement, early in their recovery. With this method, clients can return home almost immediately after their operation, with no mobility restrictions, and a reduced risk of dislocation during the healing process.
One satisfied client said, “I would like to express my thanks to MSK Doctors and Professor Lee who have helped me so much since my accident last May. I feel I am most fortunate to be independent once again, and to be able to use my hip as much as I can.”
