Knee injections

If you are experiencing knee pain due to osteoarthritis ('wear and tear') and you are on maximum painkiller therapy, you might benefit from having a steroid injection.

We recommend you speak to a GP and if they feel your knee pain could be due to wear and tear, they will arrange a Knee X-ray for you. If the x-ray confirms osteoarthritis, they might suggest a steroid injection as a treatment option.

The GP will refer you to Dr Chakrabarti for the steroid injection

At present, Dr Chakrabarti does knee injections ONLY.

A standard appointment is 20 minutes

If the injection is successful, you can have it every 4 months (3x per year)

Please wear a face covering for a booked appointment

Please download and read this info sheet regarding the procedure before booking an appointment: Knee injection patient information
