We offer many effective surgical procedures to help with knee pain and stiffness, including:

Knee arthroscopy  

A knee arthroscopy is a type of keyhole surgery. It is used to diagnose and treat knee problems that can cause chronic knee pain. During a knee arthroscopy, your Orthopaedic Consultant will insert an arthroscope (a thin tube with a camera attached to the end of it) through a small incision made in your knee. This will allow your Surgeon to examine the inside of your knee and determine the cause of your pain. Depending on what they find, they may also be able to perform treatment arthroscopically. If so, your Orthopaedic Surgeon will make more incisions in your knee, through which they’ll insert specialised surgical instruments to perform your required treatment.

Knee replacement surgery

Knee replacement surgery successfully reduces knee pain and restores function to the knee.

The knee joint is made of three main parts. If only one is damaged, your Surgeon may recommend partial knee replacement surgery. The damaged part of your knee will be removed and replaced with an artificial component, leaving the rest of your joint intact.

If the damage is more extensive, you will be recommended a total knee replacement. During total knee replacement surgery, your Consultant will remove the damaged ends of your femur (thigh bone) and tibia (shin bone) and replace them with a prosthesis. The base of your patella (kneecap) could also be removed and replaced with a prosthesis, but this will depend on the condition of your knee.

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction surgery 

ACL reconstruction surgery can repair or replace a torn anterior cruciate ligament (a major ligament in your knee). ACL damage is often caused by a traumatic accident, generally when playing sports. It’s a very common injury among athletes, and in particular footballers. ACL reconstruction helps significantly reduce knee pain and restore function to your knee, allowing you to continue to live an active lifestyle.

Knee revision surgery

After 10-15 years, the prosthesis that was implanted during your knee replacement operation will need to be replaced. During knee revision surgery, your Orthopaedic Surgeon will remove the artificial components and carefully clean the joint. A new prosthesis will be fitted in its place.
