Welcome to The Guildford Hip and Knee Clinic

Miss Gill is accepting

referrals from GPs and

insurance companies.

Here at the Guildford Hip and Knee Clinic we are passionate about patient care and experience. We know that when patients step into our clinic, they want adequate time to discuss their condition with Miss Gill. We offer all new patients generous 30 minute appointments to ensure plenty of time to be assessed and have a bespoke individualised treatment plan put together.

Imaging

If imaging is required as part of your assessment, a request will be submitted by Miss Gill. It might be possible for this to be arranged at the time of your consultation, or you may have to return at a convenient time on another day. A follow-up appointment will then be scheduled so that Miss Gill can discuss the results with you.

It may be possible for some imaging to be performed whilst you are at the hospital.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Guildford Hip and Knee Clinic.

We hope that this website will not only provide you with all the information you need about our services, but that you will also find it a useful source of information about the common causes of hip and knee pain.

It is not designed to be  an alternative to seeking medical advice. If you are suffering with pain in your hips or knees and would like to see a consultant orthopaedic surgeon please get in touch with us. Miss Gill would be pleased to offer you a consultation in one of her clinics. 

Whether you develop hip and knee pain as a result of an accident, or you have had niggling pain for some time that is getting worse, it can be a worrying time. Miss Gill is a Consultant in Trauma and Orthopaedic surgery, specialising in hip and knee replacements and the fixation of  both simple and complex fractures of the hip and knee. Miss Gill works privately at the Nuffield Health Guildford Hospital, BMI Mount Alvernia Hospital and for the NHS at the Royal Surrey County Hospital.  

Arthritis of the hip and knee is a very common condition that can affect every aspect of your life. It may be that your pain is just starting to become an inconvenience or it may be severely restricting you everyday. At the Guildford Hip and Knee clinic we will take the time to listen and together we will develop a treatment plan unique to you. Whether it is a course of physiotherapy,  a hip or knee replacement or day surgery for a tear in the cartilage of your knee, we will try to make sure that life goes on and takes you with it.

Private appointments

Health insurance

If you wish to see Miss Gill privately this can be arranged via your private health insurance. You will need to contact your insurer to gain their permission to be seen, they will then issue an authorisation code which you will need to provide to us before we can book you an appointment.  

Self pay

If you don't have private insurance in place, don't worry. You can see Miss Gill on a self pay basis by contacting her secretary directly, the contact details can be found at the bottom of this page. We will advise you of the cost of the consultation itself and any likely imaging that may be required. If you are happy to go ahead, we will book you an appointment for clinic. 

NHS

If you wish to see Miss Gill via the NHS you will need to see your GP first for an assessment. Your GP may then decide it is appropriate to send a referral letter to the Royal Surrey. Miss Gill also runs clinics at Haslemere Hospital.

Fast-track hip and knee replacements

The first Fast track hip and knee patients have had their surgery, the majority were discharged home the day after their joint replacement. Here is just one communication release from the Royal Surrey.

''Spring is certainly here and change is in the air at Royal Surrey. I have been really excited to hear about work being done by Kate Gill, Consultant Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgeon, and anaesthetic colleagues Sam Huddart and Nial Quiney on a new procedure for fast-track hip and knee replacement for patients. This incredible work means that patients are able to go home the day after surgery for what has in the past been a four-day hospital stay. Kate and her colleagues are hopeful that some patients may soon get home on the same day as their surgery. But thanks to the work of Kate and colleagues the first few patients were on their feet by 5 pm having gone to theatre in the morning.

This approach, which involves a more targeted use of anaesthetic, allowing quicker mobilization and recovery alongside a multi-disciplinary approach to recovery and after care, means a reduced hospital stay for patients and ability for them to recover in their own home which has a number of benefits for them and the NHS……….a big well done to Kate and all involved."
