Playing sport is excellent for fitness and well being, but unfortunately sometimes results in injury.
Sometimes just falling over or twisting your knee is enough to cause an injury.
Common knee injuries include cartilage (meniscus) tears, ligament injury or muscle strains.
With careful examination and special investigations, such as MRI scans, a diagnosis is usually possible and treatment started.
We have a group of specialised physiotherapists at our disposal to help with rehabilitation, however, sometimes surgery is required to treat the injury.
Most commonly key hole surgery (arthroscopy) can be employed to shave cartilage tears and return function.
Occasionally larger operations such as ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) reconstruction or cartilage transfer are required.
We have specialist sports surgeons available for these more complex soft tissue operations
