You will be invited to attend an outpatient consultation.  You will meet with one of our specialist consultants who will talk through your knee problem. You will be asked some questions about other relevant medical conditions. Some Xrays may be obtained.

The aim of the initial consultation is to understand how your knee problem affects you and to make a provisional diagnosis as to the cause of your symptoms.

Often an MRI scan may be requested to increase the accuracy of the diagnostic evaluation. This is normally arranged at another visit, but you will be given options to try and make it at a convenient time.
