Knee surgery is one of the most frequently performed operative procedures that takes place in the hospital alongside hip and shoulder surgery.
The knee operates as a hinge joint - both the largest and most complicated hinge joint in the body. It is easy for it to succumb to damage due to the nature of the joint. Being active in sports or even simple activities can put added pressure on the knee, causing an injury.
Knee joint disorders come in a variety of forms whether caused by injury, arthritis or disease. These disorders may be treated effectively via non-surgical means but if the damage is too extensive, surgery may be required.
Knee Surgeries Available
Knee Ligament Reconstruction (Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction)
The Anterior Cruciate Ligament, commonly referred to as the ACL, is a ligament which adjoins the thighbone to the shinbone, running at a diagonal through the knee. Adding additional strain or undertaking a tear to your ACL is particularly common. The reconstructive surgery involves the ACL being rebuilt.
Knee Replacement Surgery (Arthroplasty)
Commonly used in the treatment of arthritis, knee replacement surgery is an option which provides relief to those restricted to minimal activities in day to day life. When walking causes great pain and is actively uncomfortable, surgery may be necessary to gain a better quality of life for the patient.
Using an arthroscope, a small camera which Consultants can inspect the inside of a joint for diagnostic purposes. This surgery is minimally invasive and only involves the making of a small incision. This operation allows surgeons to diagnose and even potentially resolve the issue during the surgery, e.g. in an instance where tissue repair is necessary.
Patella (Kneecap) Instability
When the patella becomes unstable through trauma or dislocation it can prove to be a very painful experience. Normally, the patella should sit in a ’V’ shaped groove within the thighbone and when this becomes unstable, it can lead to long term issues within the knee joint.
The instability can be treated with non-surgical methods such as an active plan made by a physiotherapist. Unfortunately the patella can become dislodged again and the best option for recovery may have to be a surgical solution.
