Mr Bridle works very closely with consultant hip and knee surgical colleagues, Mr Sulaiman Alazzawi and Mr Philip Mitchell, as well as the wider Fortius Clinic Multidisciplinary group.
We operate on difficult cases together and the three of us share the inpatient care of our post-operative patients, to ensure that there is always someone available to review our patients in the days after the operation, while they are in hospital. One of us is always available to deal with concerns and see patients after they have gone home if there are concerns.
The Fortius difference
Fortius Clinic are a well-established Sports and Orthopaedic clinic in Central London, with out patient facilities and imaging in the City and Marylebone and surgical sites at the Fortius Surgical Centre and the Cromwell Hospital.
Fortius have now expanded into South West London, with an outpatient facility in Wimbledon and surgical facilities at Spire St Anthony’s Hospital.
The state-of-the-art clinic Fortius Clinic Wimbledon is in the centre of Wimbledon, close to good transport links and parking available nearby. The facility includes modern consulting rooms, X ray, ultrasound and MRI; very competitive self pay rates are available for MRI.
The Fortius Joint Replacement Centre at Spire St Anthony’s St Anthony’s is a modern hospital, including new operating theatres, with a MAKO robot for hip and knee replacement, and an Intensive Care Unit to support more complex patients and surgery.
COVID and our practice
The COVID pandemic finally seems to be reaching the end and private hospitals are back to working at full capacity. The majority of the population are now fully vaccinated. It remains important that hospitals maintain a COVID safe environment, to protect our patients from the risk of infection, which can still be serious in people who had undergone surgery. We have pathways, which have proved very effective in avoiding COVID infections in our surgical patients.
Out patient consultations are normally face to face for new and post surgical patients. Remote consultations (ie video / telephone) are often more convenient for follow up visits for results and continue to be used.
