  • Hi,

    Thank you

  • Good Day, I am a private client who would like to know the cost of an arthroscopy to the meniscus of my left knee. I have had an MRI done and have had confirmation of the requirement for surgery however at the present time the military are not carrying out elective procedures. I would like to therefore know the costs involved in doing it privately and paying cash. Is this possible.
