NHS Waiting times are (understandably) at the highest levels for years. There is no significant waiting in the private sector, and fixed-price surgery is cheaper than you may think!
Find out more about the treatments I offer.
I welcome self-funded patients! No referral is needed just get in touch. It is £250 for an initial consultation and £150 for a follow-up appointment. (I also work this all major insurers except BUPA) Surgery will always be a cost-effective fixed-price package with no nasty surprises! At the Bournemouth Private Clinic, we can offer the most competitive Self Pay treatment in the region.
Self Pay, Insured, Choose and Book: I specialise in self-pay patients and about 75% of my work is people without insurance the remainder is with insured patients. I know how to keep the bills low and have negotiated some of the best prices locally for your treatment. I don't see NHS choose and book patients for free in private hospitals as some surgeons do. I don't think this is fair on my private patients or fair on the true NHS.
I only specialise in knees and sports injuries. Most so-called specialists turn out to be a 'jack of all trades' also doing hips, feet, shoulders etc!
Why is this important? Some surgeons choose to see lots and lots of patients as fast as they can, and they will be doing hips and knees and other things, NHS and private all in one day. This can mean you are one of many and if you need some extra attention, or to ask that extra question it can be hard work to get a response. I prefer to focus my time on fewer people but give them my full and undivided bespoke attention, so for example, if you need to get in touch you can email me directly and I will always answer. Why? Simple; This is what I would want for me and my family - health is too important to cut corners.
"As an experienced Physiotherapist, I have been hugely impressed with Mr Willis-Owen in every aspect of his work. Nothing but world-class in his approach with patients, his diagnostics and surgical outcomes. I trust him implicitly with my patients and wouldn't hesitate to seek him as my own surgeon if I had a hip, knee or ankle problem!" LC Pure Sports Medicine"
"Aside from being a top-class surgeon, Mr Willis-Owen really understands the concerns and psychological pressures of major sports injuries. The confidence he instilled in me that the surgery would work, and it would be possible to return to high-level competitive sport was priceless. Thank you!"
"....you are a remarkable surgeon who is so highly respected by everyone who comes in contact with you. Your bedside manner is impeccable and you inspire confidence from staff and patients alike...."
