Total Knee Replacement

Total knee replacement surgery is a very effective treatment option in minimizing or eliminating knee pain caused by arthritis when other conservative treatment methods have failed.

A total knee replacement operation involves the joint being approached through an incision at the front of the knee. The damaged parts of the knee joint and cartilage are removed and replaced with metal and durable plastic components.

Knee surgery may be right for you if severe knee pain or joint stiffness limits everyday activities, such as climbing stairs, walking, and sitting down on or rising from chairs.

Knee surgery helps you manage pain, improve your attendance and performance at work, reduces complications like obesity and a sedentary lifestyle, and can be performed at any age.

Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Reconstruction

ACL reconstruction is a surgery to replace the ligament in the center of the knee connecting the Femur and Tibia (the anterior cruciate ligament or ACL) with a new ligament. The ligaments prevent the knee joint from moving sideways and thus provide stability

The procedure is usually done by knee arthroscopy. Oher small incisions are made around the knee to place the new ligament.

The aim of the surgery is to provide you with a stable knee which in turn prevents further internal damages to the knee joint. This may protect you from developing degenerative arthritis in the long term.

Arthroscopy – Meniscus Surgery

Meniscal surgeries are one of the most commonly performed procedures in the knee. There are two meniscus in the knee.

  • Medial meniscus (inner side of the knee)
  • Lateral meniscus (outer side of the knee)

The meniscus have the following functions:

  • Assist with stability of the knee joint
  • Reduce wear
  • Protect against arthritis, and
  • Help disperse synovial fluid around the knee joint effectively

A meniscal tear is a tear in the cartilages, or menisci, that are located between the femur and tibia bones in the lower leg.

The meniscus can tear as a result of trauma, age related wear, or a combination of both factor.
