There are many conditions that can affect the knee, ranging from sports injuries to arthritis which can affect people of all ages.
Our consultant knee surgeons regularly see patients experiencing the following conditions:
Knee arthritis - Knee arthritis is a common condition, and although it can affect people of all ages, it becomes more likely as we age. Patients who used to play a lot of sport or do a job that puts pressure on the knees may develop arthritis. There are many different forms of arthritis that patients may experience:
Common signs of arthritis include:
It is important to see a specialist if you are experiencing any symptoms related to arthritis, as early treatment can be most effective.
Knee meniscus (cartilage) tear - This is one of the most common knee injuries. It can happen when you are forced to twist or rotate your knee, for example, during sport. Common symptoms include pain, swelling and stiffness and an inability to extend fully.
Ligament injury - In the form of ligament injury, sports injuries are common causes of knee injuries in all age groups , often coming from field sports such as skiing, athletics, and netball.
Tendinopathy - Patients that develop pain in the knee from tendonitis (the tendons in the knee becoming inflamed).
When experiencing pain in and around the knee, seeing a specialist as soon as possible is a good idea so that you and your consultant can best assess and plan for any future treatment that you might need. Consultants will always opt for the most conservative therapy before resorting to procedures such as a knee replacement. So you can rest assured your consultant will work with you to treat your pain and discomfort in the most conservative way possible.
The goal of knee treatment is to use the most conservative and appropriate option for each patient. Patients may initially start with physiotherapy and anti-inflammatory medications to help treat the knee.
BMI Ross Hall Hospital has a leading physiotherapy department and is fully equipped with everything needed for the recovery and rehabilitation for the wide range of knee conditions.
After these initial treatments take their course, injection therapy may be used to relieve inflammation and pain quickly and effectively. These injections include:
You don't have to put up with chronic knee pain. If non-surgical treatments are no longer effective, surgical treatments may help.
Typically patients will spend 2-3 nights in hospital after a joint replacement and will be visited by a consultant and physiotherapist every day.
Your individual lifestyle must be considered as part of your decision-making process. Your knee symptoms may prevent you from completing a round of golf, or it might be that you can't even walk upstairs without pain. When considering knee surgery, getting you back to the activity you want to do is an important consideration.
Most patients will usually require imaging tests following the initial consultation. These are some common scans and tests that your consultant may recommend depending on your specific symptoms and circumstance:
Once the test results are ready, you'll have a follow-up appointment with your consultant to discuss them. Whatever the next steps, we'll provide clarity and answer any questions you might have to put you at ease.
Our excellent team from various specialities will ensure you receive tailored treatment and will be there to comfort and reassure you from initial consultation and diagnosis to treatment and throughout the duration of treatment.
