Join Mr Rohit Jain, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, as he guides attendees through common conditions of the hip and knee and discusses treatment pathways.
 
Pain, swelling & mechanical symptoms are the most common complaints in patients with knee problems and in most cases a careful history and physical examination can determine the etiology. In the first half of the evening, Mr Jain will discuss common causes of:
 

  • Lateral knee pain 
  • Medial knee pain

  • Anterior (groin) hip pain
