Living with knee pain? Don’t wait for treatment. Call or book online today to start your journey to recovery.
Your bones and joint specialist, also known as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, will work with a team of multidisciplinary experts at our hospital to diagnose your symptoms and establish a personalised treatment plan. This could include physiotherapy sessions in our fully-equipped physiotherapy department, or steroid injection therapy to relieve swelling and pain.
If less invasive treatments aren’t enough to manage your pain, your Consultant might suggest knee surgery. If this is the case, you will receive more information about what that will involve, including how to prepare for surgery and the benefits of undergoing a knee operation. We want to make sure you feel informed and involved throughout the whole process.
A knee arthroscopy is an operation where a few small incisions are made around your knee joint to allow an arthroscope (a thin tube with a camera attached to the end) to be passed into the joint. Your Orthopaedic Surgeon will use this arthroscope to examine the inside of your joint and find the cause of symptoms such as persistent knee pain, swelling or stiffness. If possible, treatment will also be given during the arthroscopy.
Total knee replacement surgery is recommended damage to more than one part of your knee. This could be caused by arthritis or a trauma (an injury) to your knee. Your total replacement surgery will involve removing and replacing the damaged ends of your femur (thigh bone) and tibia (shin bone) with artificial components, also known as a prosthesis. This might be made of plastic, ceramics, metal, or a combination of these materials.
Partial knee replacement surgery will be recommended if the damage is only to one part of your knee joint. This damaged part is removed and replaced with a prosthesis (an artificial component). Your Orthopaedic Surgeon will secure this prosthesis in place using bone cement (a synthetic paste) or cover this prosthesis in special coatings that allow it to attach to your bone.
Over time, the prosthesis used in knee replacement surgery (whether total or partial) is subject to wear and tear. Eventually the artificial joint will need to be fixed or replaced. In this instance, you’ll be recommended knee revision surgery.
