Knee pain affects 1 in 3 people over the age of 60 years old.

Unfortunately some younger patients can be troubled by arthritis either due to poor knee cap position or injuries such as cruciate ligament rupture or knee fractures.

Knee arthritis can cause severe pain, stiffness, lack of sleep and limitation in the ability to walk significant distances, severely reducing quality of life.

For early arthritis a variety of treatments are available including physiotherapy, injections, knee washouts, cartilage transfer or realignment of the knee.

More severe arthritis often is best treated with knee replacement which is a very effective way of giving pain relief and restoring a normal level of activity. 

A variety of replacements are available within the clinic and the options will be fully discussed with you, including patello-femoral (just the knee cap) replacement, unicompartmental (half) knee replacement or total knee replacements.

Each surgeon has published results which will allow a clear discussion about the best operation for you, with benefits and risks being fully discussed

Our surgeons are highly specialised and have extremely low rates of complications, including infection.
