No matter how active you are, ROC Private Clinic in Westhill is here to help you get back to doing the things that matter to you – and to keep you moving.
Our GPs and orthopaedic and radiology Consultants offer a range of in-person services to improve your health and manage any new or longstanding injuries or condition.
We currently have experts providing face to face consultations for shoulder, back, and hip issues, as well as knee, ankle, foot, and other upper and lower limb problems. We also have clinicians with expertise and direct interest in sports medicine. There are no wait times, and you don’t even need medical insurance, as you can self-pay at ROC.

Recently we opened our expanded, state-of-the-art Diagnostic Imaging and Mammography department. We have a dedicated X-Ray room on site that allows us to offer a wide range of services including musculoskeletal and chest imaging, using the latest digital radiography equipment. This advanced technology allows faster high-quality image acquisition. MRI facilities will be also available later this year.
Previously, treating musculoskeletal problems has generally been limited to drugs, physiotherapy, injections of steroids or lubricants and ultimately surgery. However, research has shown that we can utilise the body’s natural healing abilities. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy that uses injection of a concentration of a patient’s own platelets can help to heal injured tendons ligaments, muscles, and joints.
The injections can greatly reduce the need for anti-inflammatory medication or strong painkillers and because the substance is directly from the patient’s own blood, there is no risk of negative reaction. Many of those receiving treatment have seen improvements in their symptoms within 4-6 weeks.
We also use Ultrasound-guided injections to give our doctors the clearest picture of tendons and joints, making administering the steroids more accurate than ever before. These steroids drastically decrease inflammation, improve mobility, and reduce pain.
