Knee Replacement Surgery
Knee replacement surgery is very common and involves replacing a damaged knee joint with an artificial joint (a prosthesis). After surgery most patients will see a significant reduction in pain and improved movement.
Whilst there is not a minimum age requirement for this surgery, most patients are between the ages of 60 and 80, however we are seeing a greater number of younger patients having a knee replacement due to greater strains on our joints.
Damage to the knee joint is most commonly caused by general wear and tear from age, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis or a fracture/injury.
Usually patients will undergo non-invasive treatment before surgery is recommended, this can include at-home pain relief, physiotherapy and pain injections. However once the pain is no longer manageable or your lifestyle and movement is impacted beyond what is acceptable surgery can be the next recommended step. We perform many different surgeries on patients’ knees including knee arthroscopies, total knee replacements, minimally invasive knee replacements, partial knee replacements and revision of existing knee replacements.
