Arthroscopy – Fixed Fee Package

As part of our portfolio of rehabilitation services, Curian Medical offer fixed surgical procedures at over 100 venues throughout the country.  One of the most common procedures co-ordinated is an Arthroscopy.

What is an Arthroscopy?

An arthroscopy is a type of keyhole surgery used both to diagnose and treat problems with joints.  The procedure is most commonly used on the knees, ankles, shoulders, elbows and wrist.

An arthroscopy can be used to help diagnose un-explained joint pain, joint stiffness, swelling of the joint or the joint giving way at certain times or ‘popping’ out of position.

Curian Medical co-ordinate initial tests for these types of problems and this usually involves the use of imaging studies such as X-rays, computerised tomography (CT) scans and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans.  If these tests don’t find anything it may be necessary to take a direct look at the inside of the joint, an Arthroscopy.

What happens during an arthroscopy?

A piece of equipment called an arthroscope is used during an arthroscopy. An arthroscope is a small, metal tube and inside is a bundle of fibre optics which act as both a light source and a camera.

Images are sent from the arthroscope to a video screen or an eyepiece so that the surgeon is able to see the joint.  It is also possible for tiny surgical instruments to be passed through an arthroscope to allow the surgeon to treat certain conditions.  The arthroscope is inserted into a small incision next to the joint. More small incisions may also be made to allow an examining probe or surgical instruments to be inserted.  This means it has some advantages over traditional, “open” surgery, including:

  • less pain after the operation
  • faster healing time
  • lower risk of infection
  • you can often go home the same day
  • you may be able to return to normal activities more quickly

An arthroscopy is usually carried out under general anaesthetic. In some cases, however, a spinal or local anaesthetic is used.  If you have a local anaesthetic, your joint will be numbed so you don’t feel any pain. You may still feel some sensations during the procedure, such as a slight tugging, as the surgeon works on the joint. An arthroscopy is usually performed as a day case procedure, which means the person being treated is able to go home on the same day as the surgery.

How long it takes to recover from an arthroscopy depends on the joint involved and the specific procedure you had.  You can rest assured however that Curian Medical we will advise you of the aftercare included in your fixed fee package. With access to an extensive network of venues and experts, Curian Medical are able to co-ordinate this procedure within a timely and cost effective way. 

To learn more about our nationwide surgical and further treatments service please do give us a call.

Staff Development and Training

Curian Medical recognises that staff development and learning is an integral part of our strategic planning and the training and development of our staff is key to the continual growth of the organisation. We constantly seek to improve the opportunities available to enable staff to reach their full potential. The central aim is therefore to provide an environment where continuous development can take place to equip our staff with the knowledge, skills, competence and confidence required to meet job objectives.

Our team this year have been undertaking the Level 2 – City and Guilds / AMSPAR Award in Medical Terminology.  This is proving extremely beneficial and even more relevant since the launch of our fixed fee surgery and specialist procedures service, where our team are on hand to assist our customers as much as possible with the most commonly used procedures and the medical terminology surrounding these treatments.

The course is designed for people wishing to work in the medical field in such roles as ward clerk, medical secretary, GP receptionist, healthcare assistant and medico- legal personnel. The course covers the following topics:-

  • Basics of medical terminology – word building
  • Common Roots, prefixes and suffixes
  • Anatomy and Physiology of the body systems
  • Prescription writing and abbreviations
  • Medical Specialities and personnel

This course is primarily run on line but with mentored support from a personal tutor.  We have a number of our Curative Team who have had their examination and awaiting results and newer members of the team who have last month commenced the 12 week course.We wish them all the very best with the course and best of luck with the exam results!

St Giles C of E Primary School

In line with our Corporate Social Responsibility Policy, Curian Medical aim to make a positive impact within our local community.  As an organisation we have chosen to develop a relationship with one of our local primary schools – St Giles C of E Primary School in Willenhall. Having already met with the Head Teacher – Mr Dakin, we are looking forward to building an excellent relationship with the school and our employees are really looking forward to volunteering and spending time with the pupils.  In place of purchasing and sending Christmas Cards this year, we have instead donated a sum of money to the School. We were delighted to hear that our contribution has in part paid for a production company to visit to perform a Pantomime, which the children loved.

St Giles is a special place where the staff are dedicated to providing a stimulating, exciting environment where everyone feels valued and safe, ideas can flourish and pupils can realise their full potential – do take a look at their web-site http://www.st-giles.walsall.sch.uk/

We will be sure to keep you updated throughout the coming year on our activities with the school.
