Jonathan Bell- Knee Specialist In South West London
Mr Jonathan Bell is a Consultant Orthopaedic Knee Surgeon based In South West London.
Mr Jonathan Bell is a Consultant Orthopaedic Knee Surgeon
I have been a knee specialist for over 20 years. My approach is to have a philosophy of keeping the active active and through that means that I have helped thousands of children, teens and adults return to sports and hobbies after injury, painful and degenerative conditions.
I’m very experienced in managing ligament reconstructions, arthroscopic techniques, patellar femoral stabilisation surgery, and joint replacements. I believe that many patients can be managed without surgery and will always explore nonoperative options with my patients. My passion for helping those wishing to return to sport extends to me taking my own patients skiing after surgery.
The majority of my patients come from recommendations from former patients or physiotherapists who have experience of treating my patients either with or without surgery. The rest come from other consultants or GP’s. You may see me without a recommendation if you are self funding but if you wish to use insurance ask them to authorise an appointment. I’m recognised by all insurers. My area of specialism is the knee.

What I Treat
How I can help you
Here is an overview of what i can help with. If you would like to know more – get in touch or have a short free E-consult.
what we do
Including complex repairs, arthroscopy (keyhole surgery), injectable treatments.
Including patella dislocation for patella dysplasia, patella tendinopathy, iliotibial
band syndrome (runners’ knee), fat pad and unicompartment patella replacement for isolated osteoarthritis of the patella.
Including advice on non-operative care, injectables, osteotomy, joint preservation and joint replacements. These include full replacements, partial replacements, revision procedures and bespoke tailored knee replacements designed by software to recreate the natural shape and dimensions of your own knee.
Including anterior cruciate, posterior cruciate, medial collateral, posterolateral
corner and multi-ligament injuries.
Arthroscopy means to look into the joint with a camera. By using arthroscopy, I can carry out ligament surgery, meniscal surgery and treat joint surface problems.
I see a significant number of patients requesting second opinions. Please be aware that these may not be standard “insured” appointments. I’ll try to keep within insurance guidelines for appointment length so you can use your insurance, but they often just take too long to do justice. As many second opinions are spent clearing up poor communication problems i may request that you book a longer self-pay appointment. Ill happily review each case on its merits.
Treating both insured and self-pay private patients
Jonathan is very happy to treat patients who are insured and wish to use their medical insurance to pay their bills but is also quite come happy to see patients who wish to self fund their treatment. At all points he’ll be transparent about the costs involved and that there is never any obligation to proceed with treatment if you felt that it was not affordable or for you.
