Joint reconstruction: Knee
This service deals with all problems associated with the knee in adults. This includes the diagnosis and treatment of problems arising from knee disorders deriving from sports injuries, accidents and all aspects of arthritis. RNOH is also leading in the development of knee cartilage transplantation (see Cartilage Transplantation) and plays an important role in terms of research in knee services.
Range of services

We accept referrals from GPs via the NHS e-referral system.
Urgent Inpatient Referrals
Any urgent inpatient referral must be made via email@example.com.
We can only accept a referral if the following documents are submitted to us, with any supplementary paperwork. We can no longer accept telephone referrals or those based solely on a clinic referral letter for urgent inpatient referrals. You can use this form to refer patients whose care you want us to take over, or for an urgent opinion in our MDT and/or radiology review meetings.
The JRU MDT meet every Thursday morning, therefore we request that your referral be submitted to us no later than 12:00pm on the Tuesday, with all the relevant paperwork completed.
All other referrals/queries
Please send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
