Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Reconstruction
ACL reconstruction is a type of orthopaedic knee surgery that repairs the ACL tendon in the knee. ACL tears are one of the most common types of knee injuries and happen often during sports after a fall or if the knee is twisted or stretched too far. This knee surgery can provide more stable movement and relieve pain caused by the ACL tear for patients who are a good fit for surgery.
Meniscal Repair Surgery
Meniscal repair surgery is a type of knee procedure that aims to repair the cartilage pads in the knee called the meniscus. These cartilage pads act as shock absorbers and can be damaged in several ways including during sports or as a result of everyday wear and tear. This type of knee procedure can relieve knee instability, knee pain and mobility issues associated with meniscus injury.
Knee arthroscopy is a type of minimally invasive orthopaedic procedure that uses small tools to look at the knee joint and repair small amounts of damage. Arthroscopy is often used to treat patients with osteoarthritis and sometimes is used to simply investigate an existing knee injury. Arthroscopy is a type of keyhole incision and can provide a patient with a much shorter recovery period when compared to more invasive knee surgery options.
Knee osteotomy is an orthopaedic procedure that reshapes and realigns the bones of the knee to improve how the joint works. This type of knee surgery is popular among younger and very active patients who want to avoid having a full knee replacement. Knee osteotomy can reduce knee pain while increasing mobility and knee stability.
Knee Replacement Surgery
Knee replacement, also called knee arthroplasty, is a common type of orthopaedic treatment that replaces a damaged knee joint with an artificial implant called a prosthesis. This knee treatment can relieve severe knee pain, reduce knee stiffness and increase mobility. It is commonly performed on patients with arthritic knees or patients who are not able to manage their knee pain with painkillers, physiotherapy or steroid injections.
