Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction

ACL reconstruction is a surgical procedure that involves a torn ligament being removed from the knee. A tissue graft is then inserted. The surgery is performed via keyhole or minimally invasive surgery, to reduce scarring and bruising.

Arthroscopy

This is the surgical reconstruction or replacement of an arthritic joint. Hip and knee replacements are the most common major orthopaedic procedures. The goals are to restore function and relieve pain.

Knee revision

This surgical procedure involves replacing a patient’s artificial knee joint with a new one. This surgery may also involve the use of bone grafts.

Lateral release

In this surgical procedure, tight structures on the outer part of the kneecap are released to ease knee pain caused by the kneecap being pulled away from its normal alignment.

Meniscal repair

A meniscus tear is a common injury to the cartilage that stabilises and cushions the knee joint. If the tear is unable to heal on its own, surgery may be necessary.

Patella resurfacing

A surgical procedure to replace the joint surface of the patella. It is usually performed as part of a total knee replacement but may be done in isolation if the joint surface damage is confined to the patella.

Therapeutic injection for joint pain relief

Injections are a fast and easy method of easing joint pain and inflammation in the knee caused by arthritis/osteoarthritis. Injections include steroids, to ease inflammation, and Hyaluronate, which helps the joint to move more smoothly.

Total knee replacement

Total knee replacement surgery involves replacing diseased or damaged joint surfaces in the knee with metal and plastic components shaped to allow continued motion of the knee.

Uni-knee replacement

Total knee replacement surgery involves replacing diseased or damaged joint surfaces in the knee with metal and plastic components shaped to allow continued motion of the knee.
