Take control of your healthcare
It’s not hard to see why more patients needing orthopaedic surgery are choosing to go private with Medbelle.
As mentioned in:
We're leading the way in private orthopaedic care
At Medbelle, we have set out to provide the outstanding care we'd love to experience ourselves. To do so, we advance orthopaedic care in every way. Here's how:
The UK's Leading Surgeons
We hand-pick our orthopaedic consultant surgeons. Every one of them has glowing reviews and is a highly experienced registrar of the GMC specialist register. This is one of many reasons we are the best-rated medical provider in the UK.
Personal One-to-One Support
Your personal Patient Care Adviser will follow your journey every step of the way and is always on hand to answer your questions (or just have a chat). They will organise behind the scenes so you can focus on the important things and receive seamless and fast diagnosis and treatment.
Don't worry about finances
Private healthcare can be accessible to everyone. If you have private medical insurance, we can speak to your PMI on your behalf to figure out what is covered. If you want to pay yourself or explore finance options for monthly instalments, we provide transparent and fixed pricing to make things easier for you. In any case, we’re here to walk you through your options.
Your Medbelle orthopaedic journey
Your condition and recommended treatment mean you’ll have an individualised patient pathway.
Here’s what you can expect:
1. Initial talk with your personal care adviser
Your personal care adviser will answer your initial questions and discuss the next steps with you. If you have not already booked online, they will help you schedule your appointment with one of our hand-picked orthopaedic specialists. If required, they will also help you get your pre-authorisation code from your insurer or provide you with a transparent cost overview from the beginning. In case you have had diagnostic scans (x-rays, CT & MRI) recently, either privately or in the NHS, your personal care adviser will support you to get those to your Medbelle surgeon.
Your initial consultation can either be face-to-face or virtually via video or phone. Your Medbelle surgeon will assess your history, examine your problem and review any existing scans to provide you with the best next steps. In some cases, additional scans can be made on the day and you might receive pain injections.
3. Diagnostic Scans
In case further diagnostic scans are required, Medbelle will organise those for you and schedule a follow-up consultation.
4. Diagnosis & Treatment
Based on the findings, you will receive a diagnosis and Medbelle will provide you with a treatment plan. Your Medbelle surgeon will only recommend surgery when it is absolutely necessary:
- Non-surgical pathway: May include physiotherapy and/or other non-surgical treatments.
- Surgical pathway: If you require surgery, Medbelle will organise your treatment and support you right through to recovery.
Your personal care adviser will be in touch with you throughout the whole process to make sure you are in the best hands. Remember, our Patient Care Team is here to guide you through the process one step at a time, so you don’t have to feel overwhelmed or alone when progressing through your patient pathway.
