It is a philosophy that will enable you to feel confident that you are receiving the best possible treatment from a specialist who sees you as an individual.


If you are considering private knee surgery, it is important to choose the right clinic for you. Learning more about the clinic and your specialist’s approach to treatment can help you to make the best choice. Read on to learn more about Mr Matt Dawson’s approach and how it will shape your care at the clinic.

Joint Preservation

Many factors must be considered when choosing the right treatment approach for your knee. One of the most important factors is joint preservation, which is a key part of the treatment philosophy at the Cumbrian Knee Clinic. Being able to move around and pursue your usual activities can make a huge difference to your quality of life. Your treatment at the clinic will therefore aim to preserve as much of your joint function at the highest level as possible, for as long as possible. Getting the right treatment could affect your ability to keep working, continue playing sports, or simply to manage everyday activities around the home.

Personalised Care

Every patient is different, so your treatment will need to be tailored to you. You will be carefully assessed before treatment in order to ensure that the individual variations in your knee are understood. The treatment will then be planned in order to produce the best results for you. It is essential to ensure that the knee alignment and stability will be as good as possible in order to enable your knee to function as well as it can. The knee is a complex and hardworking joint that needs to be handled with great care during surgery. The treatment must therefore be tailor made for you joint in order to achieve the best results.

Patient-Led Care

Another key part of the Cumbrian Knee Clinic philosophy is that you will be at the centre of your care. The patient led approach will ensure that you feel well informed and in control of your treatment at every stage. Patient education is a very important part of your care at the clinic. Mr Dawson will ensure that you understand your options and that you know what to expect before you undergo surgery. If you have any questions, there will be plenty of opportunities to ask Mr Dawson for advice. You will also receive plenty of support before and after the procedure in order to ensure that you are able to regain your mobility as quickly and fully as possible. You will be treated as an individual, not just as a procedure to be completed.
