Mr Paul Dunkow Orthopaedic Consultant Specialist FRCS
« on: February 04, 2013, 10:51:34 PM »

Mr Dunkow originally grew up on the Fylde Coast and Arnold School in Blackpool. He then went on to study at Manchester Medical School where he underwent his undergraduate and post-graduate training. He carried out his orthopaedic training as a registrar at the Manchester Teaching Hospital and hospitals around the North West.

He has trained specifically doing a fellowship in knee replacement, arthroscopic surgery of the knee and also hip replacement surgery. It gives him great pleasure to return to the Fylde Coast where he has now taken up a position as an orthopaedic consultant at the Victoria Hospital, Blackpool.

Mr Dunkow's current practice encompasses all aspects of surgery of the knee, including knee replacement, arthroscopic surgery of the knee and cruciate ligament reconstruction. He also performs conventional hip replacement surgery. He is looking forward to meeting the needs of the people of Blackpool and the Fylde Coast. Mr Dunkow is always happy to give advice and discuss cases.

Why is arthroscopy necessary?

Diagnosing injuries and disease begins with a thorough medical history, physical examination, and usually X-rays. Additional tests such as an MRI, or CT scan also may be needed. Through the arthroscope, a final diagnosis is made which may be more accurate than through "open" surgery or from X-ray studies.

What are the joints that can be viewed with an Arthroscope?

Although the inside of nearly all joints can be viewed with an arthroscope, six joints are most frequently examined with this instrument. These include the knee, shoulder, elbow, ankle, hip, and wrist. As engineers make advances in electronic technology and orthopaedic surgeons develop new techniques, other joints may be treated more frequently in the future.

Will physical therapy be required after surgery?

Getting a full range of motion, strength and flexibility back after surgery usually takes time. That's where pre-operative exercise and education and post-operative physical therapy programs come in to ensure you're physically and emotionally prepared for surgery, and to maximize your recovery after surgery.

What should I bring with me when I come for an appointment?

When you come for your appointment remember to bring the following:

    * Valid ID
    * Insurance information
    * Referral Letter (if required)
    * Copies of results, x-rays, MRI's. CT scans etc and any other relevant information
    * List of medications (if any)
