About

Mr Gareth Stables has been looking after people with knee problems for over 18 years. What he's noticed over the years is that consultants who specialise in one thing tend to have the best results. That’s why he chose to only look after and help people with knee problems.

There are three main problems that Mr Stables can help you with:

Diagnosing your knee pain - getting to the bottom of what’s causing the pain, arranging investigations such as MRI scans and X-rays, making sure you understand what the problem is and helping you fix it.

Knee arthritis -  He can help diagnose knee arthritis early and will be able to offer treatments such as specialist joint injections (that are not always available on the NHS).

Early diagnosis and treatment can help you avoid major surgery. If you need surgery, such as a knee replacement, he will help you decide if surgery is right for you, and, will only perform the surgery that is right for you.

Sports injuries - for example, helping you get active and playing again after a cartilage tear or cruciate ligament tear.

I have found Mr. Stables very easy to talk to, he listens and understands your concerns. He gives extremely good advice and thoroughly explains everything one needs to know about your condition and the process to correct it. I have found Mr. stables has a really excellent bedside manor and he does all he can to arrange your operation to suit your appropriate timing. Over a really nice chap and gentleman.

Relatively straightforward and successful despite the impact of Covid-19, which probably also resulted in some delays in appointments. Still early days but I am encouraged by the conversations I have had with the consultant.

I can’t fault the pre, during and post op care I received from Doctor Stables. In the consultation phase he spent time helping me understand my injury and the surgery procedure, along with mapping out my proposed recovery - he made it very easy to understand, and made it a lot less daunting. He’s a doctor that cares about you and helping you get better.

I found my treatment with Mr Stables really supportive and informative. I really liked the fact I could contact Mr Stables on email after my consultation. Sometimes there are things you have forgotten to ask when you meet so it’s nice to have that extra connection. Thank you

I cannot recommend Mr Stables and the Spire enough. I was treated with kindness, courtesy and respect at the highest level throughout, from every member of staff involved in my care. In addition the facilities are excellent.

I was able to arrange an appointment with Mr Stables quite quickly. He advised me of the possible problems in an easy to understand way, arranged a MRI scan and recommended a suitable Physiotherapist. After a second consultation I feel that I am making progress towards recovery, with continued physiotherapy. Overall I am happy with my consultant and the way that everything has been handled.

I have developed Osteoarthritis in one of my knees which has been causing me great pain. Mr Gareth Stables was my consultant. He injected my knee with PRP, Platement Rich Plasma, which has helped me enormously. Feel I can go walking and cycling again and generally get my life back. I am very grateful to Mr Stables.
