Dr. K.L. Ng  BSc, MBChB, FRCR (London)

General & Musculo-Skeletal Ultrasound.

What's Special about this Clinician?

Dr. K.L was appointed as Consultant Radiologist to St Albans City Hospital & Hemel Hempstead General Hospital in 1995. His special interest is in cross-sectional imaging (e.g. ultrasound, CT and MRI) with particular emphasis on musculo-skeletal, sports injury and trauma Imaging. He says, “We are all familiar with the use of ultrasound (US) scan for the abdomen, pelvis, thyroid and testes. Less well known, however, is the ‘mini revolution’ that has taken place in the field of musculo-skeletal Ultrasound (MSS US) over the past few years. With the latest machines, practically every ‘soft tissue’ of the musculo-skeletal system can be assessed in great detail from skin down to bone (muscles, tendons, ligaments, bursae, neurovascular bundles as well as the cortical surface of bone itself).” The great advantage of musculoskeletal ultrasound is the absence of Ionising Radiation (compared to x-ray, CT and isotope scan), and its relative low cost. Using High Frequency Ultrasound, Dr. K.L. is is able to: Determine the aetiology of a “lump” (e.g. ganglion, lipoma, lymph node or neuroma). Assess the nature and extent of soft tissue injury (e.g. muscle or tendon tear). Diagnose and grade compression neuropathy (e.g. carpal tunnel syndrome). Apply Colour Doppler to pinpoint areas of inflammation/hyperaemia without the need for IV contrast injection (e.g. localised tenosynovitis). Accurately guide needle injections (e.g. subacromial bursa in shoulder) to maximise the therapeutic benefit and avoid accidental intratendinous injection. Here at the Hertfordshire Clinic, Dr. K.L. has access to the very latest equipment, including the Phillips ATL HDI 5000 SonoCT, and provides a comprehensive ultrasound service including scans of abdomen, testes, thyroid, & 3D Colour Doppler as well as musculo-skeletal scanning (including ultrasound-guided injection/intervention).

At The Hertfordshire Clinic Dr. Godlee has built up an enviable reputation for his work as a facial aesthetic practitioner, with many loyal and regular patients.

Botulinum toxin, when used judiciously and carefully, can produce marked benefit not only as a treatment of facial lines, but, when used regularly, can also act as a truely preventative agent, to protect against long term skin changes.
Dr. Godlee has published works on the benefits of Botulinum toxin, and is working on a study comparing the benefits shown when treating only one of identical twin sisters.

Clinic appointments are available for 30 minutes. Ice is used for topical anaesthesia.

Sole Rescue

Visit Sole Rescue

Marlene is a fully qualified practitioner and a member of the Association of Reflexologists and all sessions are carried out by her.

Reflexology is non-intrusive complementary therapy, based on the theory that different points on the feet and hands correspond with different areas of the body. It is a holistic therapy, the aim being to treat the whole person – relaxation, toning, stimulating and strengthening the whole mind and body system. By using the body’s own natural healing process, many health problems can be alleviated. People of all ages can and do benefit from treatment and reflexology works in conjunction with healthcare from your general practitioner.

Sessions last about one hour. The number of treatments will depend on the individual and the nature of the disorder. It is not uncommon, after having completed a course of reflexology treatments for a specific condition, to continue with regular treatments in order to maintain health and wellbeing.
