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.
This surgical treatment stabilises the patella, or knee cap, if it has a tendency to dislocate. By helping it to run in a more normal position, dislocation is prevented and pain eased.
A knee arthroscopy is used to investigate knee problems, including inflammation and injury, or to repair damaged tissue or remove a Baker’s Cyst. An arthroscope – a telescope on a long, thin cord – is inserted through small cuts in the skin. Arthroscopies enable the patient to recover faster from surgery.
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.
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.
