Information about Surgery
Shoulder stabilisation Arthroscopy or Laterjet
Straight Leg Raises
Mr Sivardeen wanted you to do these exercises till he sees you next.
It should not make your knee pain worse (increased thigh pain is normal and ok), but in the unlikely event of your knee pain worsening, please stop and let us know.
If too easy, please increase repetitions or use ankle weights.
Also, if possible use a cycle machine with low resistance and with the seat relatively high (so you don’t squash your knees).
Posture And Neck Exercises
Below are useful links for you to perform neck and posture exercises as discussed with Mr Sivardeen.
Passive Shoulder Exercises
Please see below a link showing some useful exercises to do to keep your shoulder moving. There is no need to do the exercises round your back.
The exercises are specific for a frozen shoulder, but they can be used as you recover from any surgery if instructed by your surgeon
Pendular Exercises are a useful shoulder exercise to do.
Often after surgery your knee may swell. We would recommend you purchase a cryocuff machine which will help you in your recovery. Note you will get one automatically if surgery is at the London Independent Hospital

You can now be seen by Mr Sivardeen via the NHS at a Private Hospital. There is no charge and there are lots of advantages, although it is still a lot slower than being seen privately.
To be seen at Spire London East
You need to go to your GP and ask to be referred to the Spire London East by a system called “choose and book”. You need to put my name in the body of the referral ie you want to see Mr Sivardeen. You also need to specify that you need the appointment on a Wednesday, (you may end up being booked to see Mr Karmegam, but that is fine because we work together). If this is not an option you can get your GP to write a letter to me to see if I can see you on the NHS at the Spire London East and I should be able to sort this out. Please send this letter to me
