Too young for joint surgery?

Promotional Feature

Since opening in 2015, the European Scanning Centre, has become the first choice for anyone requiring an MRI scan, but who cannot tolerate a traditional scanner for reasons such as claustrophobia, size or inability to lie flat. We have also pioneered weight bearing scanning in the patient's position of pain, ie, sitting, which can show changes that are not present on a regular lying scan.

As part of our expansion, ESC has joined with Mr Fahad Attar, Consultant Surgeon and Professor Waqar Bhatti, Consultant Radiologist to form the Regenerative Therapy Centre.

Regenerative medicine is the branch of medicine that develops methods to regrow, repair or replace damaged or diseased cells, organs or tissues. Cell therapies and regenerative medicine, represent a structural shift in healthcare by focusing on the underlying causes of disease by repairing, replacing, or regenerating damaged cells in the body.

Our evidence based biological treatments will help potentially treat your condition and avoid major surgery

Our team of dedicated regenerative medicine experts use the latest biological advancements such as stem cells, autologous protein solution and platelet rich plasma (PRP) from your own body to treat various conditions as well as offering viscosupplementation injections.

We successfully manage and treat; degenerative joint arthritis, tendon and muscle injuries, nonspecific joint aches and pains and other musculoskeletal conditions, ensuring full recovery by applying a non-surgical approach.

Our patients are varied and range from the older arthritis patient who wants to maintain their mobility to the younger sports enthusiast or weekend warrior who sustain injuries whilst playing team or individual sports. We also cover and treat the elite sports person who is looking to get back to play as soon as possible. Some of the sports injuries we have successfully covered include injuries sustained in taekwondo, football, rugby, cricket and tennis.

Relieve Pain - Avoid Surgery - Restore Function

Therapies are carried out by Mr Attar and Professor Bhatti at the European Scanning Centre's superb facilities at Kingsley Hall, near to Manchester Airport.
