Over the last few months have you noticed increasing discomfort, aching and stiffness in your knees? Perhaps you have noticed a “grating” feeling or that your knee has odd lumps and bumps on it which never used to be there. You may have pain aggravated by turning or twisting movements.
Knee Meniscal Tears
Knee meniscal or soft “cartilage tears” of the knee are very common clinical problems. In general, there are 2 types of meniscal tears, traumatic or degenerate meniscal tears
Knee Arthroscopy / Key Hole Knee Surgery
Knee Arthroscopy is a procedure most commonly performed for soft tissue cartilage tears, known as mensical tears, loose bodies, cartilage defects due to early knee arthritis and for knee inflammation. Typical symptoms of a meniscal tear are an aching discomfort localised either to the inside (medial) or outside (lateral) of your knee.
Partial Knee replacement surgery
I have received enquires from patients regarding ‘Personalised Knee Replacements’. Personalised knee replacements refer to total knee replacements which are performed utilising MRI technology to produce personalised positioning guides to be used during the knee replacement.
Knee Replacement Surgery
A knee replacement, or arthroplasty is a surgical procedure in which the arthritic portions of the knee are removed and replaced with a new, artificial joint. The operation involves removing the damaged surfaces of the knee and replacing them with an artificial joint containing metal and plastic component. It is an extremely successful operation for the vast majority of people.
Robotic Assisted Knee & Hip Replacement
Knee and hip replacements are common, successful surgical procedures where the worn out, damaged surface of the knee or hip surface is removed and replaced with an artificial joint. Approximately 160,000 hip and knee replacements are performed in England and Wales each year.
