Lincolnshire clinic hopes to ease pressure on NHS with state-of-the-art technology

A clinic in Lincolnshire hopes to help relieve pressure on the NHS through the use of the county’s only open MRI scanner.

Staff at the new Sleaford branch of MSK Doctors hope their host of modern equipment, sourced from around the world, will help ease the pressure on the NHS.

Opened in December, the private London Road clinic has a range of technologies typically used to treat professional athletes.

Prof Paul Lee, the clinic’s medical director and lower extremity specialist, told Lincolnshire Live there were substantial benefits to assessing patients in an open MRI scanner compared to the traditional doughnut-shaped machine.

Unlike standard scanners, which require patients to remain still, the clinic’s MRI scanner can capture patients in motion as part of a new and growing branch of medicine called motion dynamics.

Professor Lee said: “We want to assess how people move.

“The branch of medicine that we are looking at, which is quite new, is called movement dynamics.

“Traditionally, when people are X-rayed, they’re still lying down, and the joint doesn’t look too bad when you’re still.

“We can watch people when they’re standing, but people aren’t standing all day, they’re walking, so we want to imagine you when the joint is moving and causing the problem.”

According to upper extremity specialist, Mr Alun Yewlett, it would also reduce the waiting time for patients as it would speed up diagnosis.

He said: “Historically, most MRI scans were static images, but none of our athletes’ problems were static.

“It’s obvious when you say it, but it’s not something that’s been looked at.

“You can scan a static image and not see a problem.

“The benefit of being able to see movement is that it allows you to get that information that historically needed to be obtained through invasive treatments.

“You can also get the diagnosis very quickly and make the right patient decisions.

“It doesn’t matter how good the treatment is – if you get the diagnosis wrong, it doesn’t matter.”

Mr. Yewlett and Professor Lee stand in the athletic assessment room. Now MSK House, the building was once a driving range.

The clinic also uses equipment that tests patients’ balance, usually reserved for high-level athletes.

Professor Lee explained: “It’s usually used by elite athletes – they have one at West Ham and one at Chelsea.

“He looks at how quickly people can move from side to side.

“We’ll have people jump on it and jump, then you can see which leg they’re putting the most force on, and from there we can assess if there are any issues in the joints.

“We treat very different people with this equipment. Athletes are normally between 16 and 25 years old, and the emphasis is on 0.2 milliseconds of movement.

“But with someone who needs a joint replacement, the age group is usually between 60 and 90.

“We’re not looking at 0.2 milliseconds, we’re looking at what they can do in five seconds – if they can stand up, that sort of thing.

“It’s the same equipment but on a different scale.

“There is no other installation like this, apart from Harley Street in London.”

The team chose Sleaford as the location for their second clinic because they found it easy for anyone to get there from all over Lincolnshire.

The professor said: “Sleaford is a growing town – there are many, many houses coming up.

“But the main reason is that Sleaford is right in the middle of Lincolnshire.

“It doesn’t take long for people in Lincoln, Grantham or Boston to get there.

“Whatever, our patients are going to have to drive. If the clinic was in the center of Lincoln, then people would be asked to walk when they might not be able to.

“It will also allow people to stay in Lincolnshire for their treatment, and the money will be recycled in Lincolnshire rather than Nottingham or London.”

Prof Lee and Mr Yewlett also work for the NHS and do not intend the clinic to replace a GP’s clinic.

“We are looking at different things for the NHS,” Prof Lee said.

“The NHS is there for us and for any big issue they are absolutely essential.

“We’re both working on it and we both believe in it, but at the same time they can’t offer much – it’s impossible for them to give everyone a half-hour slot because the population is too important.

“By doing this, we want to take the pressure off the NHS by providing a specialist service that a patient can access quickly, as well as MRI scans.

“There’s a pretty big queue for MRI scans, so if they want they can take the scan here and move on to the treatment.”

The building was once better known as Birdie’s Driving Range, before it closed in 2019.

Top dentist warns of hidden dangers of flying abroad for cosmetic dental work

A leading dentist has warned of the risks faced by thousands of Britons traveling abroad in search of a better smile.

Tens of thousands of British residents are flocking to hotspots such as Turkey, Hungary, Ukraine and Spain to get dental procedures at a fraction of the price it costs at home.

However, for many it can backfire, with a range of risks that could leave patients with crippling bills and substandard treatments.

Dr. Honar Shakir, from leading private dental practice Ban dental group, told the Daily Star: “Dental tourism has been on the rise for several years as UK patients believe they can perfect their smiles cheaply abroad.

“However, traveling for treatment carries a range of inherent risks, from a lack of regulation to sloppy procedures.

“Many clinics overseas don’t have to meet the same hygiene and training standards as we do in the UK, so you can’t always be sure you’re in safe hands.

“There may also be a lack of proper aftercare and adjustment, which is vital for major dental work, so you may not get the results promised. And the result might not last as long as expected.

“It can be tempting to let the cost of procedures like veneers or orthodontic work dictate where you choose to have them done, but that can end up being a false economy and an orthographic disaster for your teeth.”

He says Britons could face crippling bills and substandard treatment abroad

Dental tourism is the term given to the practice of flying abroad for dental care, whether it is a routine job or a cosmetic procedure.

It has grown in popularity over the past decade – from 48,000 patients in 2014 to 144,000 in 2016 according to the latest figures.

Popular destinations for Britons are Turkey, Hungary, Spain, Greece, Ukraine and Slovakia.

Often patients will pay for a package that includes flights and accommodation as well as the procedure itself.

However, a lack of regulation and monitoring can leave patients with substandard work that they then have to have corrected at home, leading to spiraling bills and months of suffering.

Dr. Shakir said it was important to consider all factors when deciding where to get treatment, not just price.

He added: “Some people may think the cost of home dental work is too high and therefore they look for cheaper options.

“However, price shouldn’t be the only consideration when it comes to your health.

“Clinics in the UK must subscribe to the highest standards of hygiene and care, and the reason it might be cheaper to go overseas for treatment is that overseas clinics don’t necessarily have to meet the same standards.

“It’s important to do your research on who will be performing your treatment and weigh the possible benefits and risks to make sure you are completely comfortable with your decision. Some treatments need biological time to work, such as dental implants placed in the bone. Rushing such procedures during the holidays can lead to devastating health issues”
