Our Knee Surgical Treatments
The knee is a complex weight bearing joint which is able to tolerate significantly more load than an individual’s bodyweight. It rotates, rolls and slides through a remarkable range of motion which also makes it susceptible to injury and damage. This may affect the bones, articular cartilage (shiny surface covering the ends of the bones), menisci (specialised cartilage for load distribution and shock absorption), ligaments, capsule (joint lining),tendons and muscles. This can result in pain, swelling, locking ( the knee becoming temporarily stuck in a position) or instability with the feeling of giving way.
