The Reading Knee Unit was established by Sean O'Leary in 2009 to enable patients’ access to appropriately skilled professionals / consultants to understand and treat their particular knee condition. This process should include information on your condition, the potential outcome of any procedures and surgery by appropriately skilled consultants.
