This web site is run by one of the founders of the Droitwich. Take a look at their website for fees etc.

It is a centre of excellence for the UK running training courses and supporting new young talent. Many of the original surgeons are now runnignsimilar centres in other parts of the country. As the first specialist centre for knees and knee surgery, it is still one of the best.

I was referred there in 1990 but was not privately insured and could not afford the fees. I regret not taking out a loan to have the work done as it took three times as long on the NHS.

Thank you for that both much appreciated!

Clarkey - I live in brum too, my physio is treating someone at the moment who has just had an op with Markus green, he said his work is second to none. I may think about seeing him instead now, i live ten minutes from the priory!

Hi Again.

So pleased I could help you out in finding a decent OS in Birmingham and also pleased to hear someone had a successful scope under Mr Green. I will give you a breif history about my knee problem, I was jogging on October 19th 2007 and my shoelace came undone while jogging and fell very heavy onto my right knee and since that day can no longer run or walk fast and get regular pain inside the knee and feel catching. I saw my GP and a PT but in the end was referred to the Birmingham Royal Orthpaedic Hospital in Northfield but been a nightmare as they ended up saying I dont have a knee problem when I clearly do and had the nerve to say its in my head so I now going to go for a private for a consultation with Mr Green and seeing my GP for referral to see Mr Green next week tuesday.

The point I making is that I hope to see Mr Green for a private consultation and then get treated by him on the NHS as he works part time at the Royal Orthpaedic Hospital but not sure if its allowed but will know on tuesday. Its saves waiting time seeing him private then get treated by him for free on the NHS.

Good luck with your appointment.

Hi again,

Thats the main reason I want to only see Mr Green and no other OS at the ROH as I know he very good at his job and know edgbaston cricket players go and see him if they have a knee problem. Its worth seeing him with your knee problem as I am sure he can sort it out for you as he will sort it out with mine. I got a phone call yesterday to see Mr Hussain at the ROH on the 21st April but as soon as letter arrives for appointment will cancel it as I feel he not the OS that can solve my knee problem while Mr Green can. Its important to see a good OS and if you need a 2nd scope he the person that should do the surgery as I only heard praise from people that seen him and had a scope done by him. Sorry to hear you still have got problems with you knee and suggest you see Mr Green at the Priory for a consultation as he worth every penny. You did not happen to see a PT called Alexander at the ROH if you have how did you find him as he had the nerve to say my knee fine and problem is in my head so can see why I have gone private.

Thats unusual as I was seen by a NHS PT through my GP but had to wait 12 weeks till I got my appointment and saw a PT in Quinton who told me I have maltracking in both knees. I then was referred to the ROH to see another PT and in the end wish I never saw him when I got told my knee fine even though its swollen and get pain and catching so may be better off seeing a PT private. I recommend that you go and see a PT at Edgbaston Cricket Ground called Physiokinetic and have a good PT's that have a private clinic in the cricket ground.

Hi again,

I also got some good news and on the way to see Mr Green just need to arrange a date and time to see him. I saw my GP today about getting a referral to see Mr Green as I cancelled the NHS OS appointment yestersday as I only want to see Mr Green and my GP told me cant see why Mr Green cant treat me on the NHS if I see him for a private consultation so maybe if you needed a scope save your money and get it done on the NHS by him. If he lets you as its up to him what he decides.

As for the cost of a scope at the Priory I dont know but will be around the same as Droitwich Knee Clinic around £3000 a would estimate. Might get it done on the NHS anyway as I mentioend above if you did end up needing another scope.

Good luck with appointment with Mr Green tell me how you get on and I will will do vice versa.

Good news all round then!

My doctor said that his waiting lists are not too bad, my doctor had acl re-construction with him 12 months ago, he said he is absolutely brillaint as a surgeon!

Im hoping i only have to wait 6-8 weeks to see him, let me know if you get your appointment through and ill do the same!

Hi again.

I phoned up the Priory Hospital this afternoon and got an appointment on 23rd April at 5pm with Mr Green thats only 2 weeks tomorrow so can get an appoitment with him within 2 weeks or even sooner as I asked for an appoitment after 4pm when I am not not working. I think you will have no problems getting a consultation with Mr Green this month and advise you to phone up the Priory 1st thing in the morning to get an appointment with Mr Green. The way it works is you go and see your GP and ask for a referral to see Mr Green, your GP will write a referral letter to Mr Green but have to take the letter to the appointment. Its up to you to book the appointment as I just done this afternoon and found his secretary very helpful when I spoke to her.

Good luck with getting an appointment.
