Bilateral Tenotomy

A tenotomy is a procedure to lengthen a muscle that has not developed properly or that has shortened due to injury or lack of mobility. Typically a tendon is cut allowing the muscle to stretch again and the limb to straighten.

Surgeons can perform a bone graft to repair or rebuild damaged bone in many areas of your body.

Bunion surgery (bunionectomy)

A bunion is a bony bump on the joint at the base of your big toe.

Chiropody

Chiropody is the area of medicine associated with treating foot ailments including corns, ingrown toenails and verrucae.

Chondroplasty

Chondroplasty is a surgical procedure to remove damaged cartilage in a joint.

Computer Assisted Knee Replacement

During computer assisted knee replacement your surgeon uses probes that are linked to a computer to map out specific areas on your body.

Flat foot correction

Flat foot occurs when the arch of your foot is very low or flattens, causing your foot to fall inward.

Forefoot reconstructive surgery

Forefoot reconstructive surgery is treatment for your toes to alleviate problems caused by rheumatoid arthritis.

Fusion of big toe

If you are suffering from stiffness in your big toe (hallux rigidus) and it does not respond to conservative treatment your consultant may recommend toe fusion.

Hallux Valgus Surgery

Hallux Valgus surgery is also called a bunionectomy.

Hemiarthroplasty

A hemiarthroplasty is a procedure to replace only the femur portion of your hip joint.

Hindfoot fusion

Hindfoot fusion is a surgical procedure used to relieve pain and stiffness in your foot caused by arthritis, deformity or breaks.

Hindfoot osteotomy

A hindfoot osteotomy is a procedure usually performed to correct damage caused by osteoarthritis or a deformity in your heel.

Hip arthroscopy

Hip arthroscopy is a procedure in which a miniature telescope is inserted through an incision over your hip joint commonly used to diagnose a problem, or occassionally to perform a treatment.

Hip replacement

A hip replacement is a procedure to remove your damaged hip joint and replace it with an artificial ball and socket joint (a prosthesis).

Hip resurfacing

Hip resurfacing is a procedure that provides a new surface for the ball (femur head) and socket that make up your hip joint.

Hip revision

Hip Revision is a procedure to take out your old hip replacement and put in a new one.

Ilizarov frame surgery

An ilizarov frame is an external frame surgeons use to lengthen or reshape bones or to treat complex mal-union or non-union fractures.

Ingrown toenail (and ingrown toenail surgery)

When the side of your toenail curls and pierces your skin this is called an ingrown toenail.

Joint resurfacing

Joint surfaces damaged by wear and tear or arthritis may be able to be resurfaced.

Keller's arthroplasty

Keller’s arthroplasty is a surgery to treat bunions.

Knee arthroscopy

Knee arthroscopy (also called keyhole knee surgery) allows your surgeon to see inside your knee joint using a camera inserted through small cuts in the skin.

Knee replacement

During a knee replacement your whole existing knee joint is replaced with a new prosthetic knee joint.

Knee replacement (partial)

Unlike total knee replacements, partial knee replacements replace only part of your knee joint.

Knee replacement revision

As patients live longer and more active lives older knee implants may need replacing.

Knee surgery (ACL repair)

The anterior cruciate ligament is replaced with a piece of suitable tissue from elsewhere in the body.

Matrix-induced chondrocyte implantation (MACI)

Matrix-induced chondrocyte implantation is used to repair damaged articulating surfaces, mainly in the knee joint.

Meniscectomy for meniscus tear

A torn meniscus may not heal on its own as there is a limited blood supply to that area.

Midfoot fusion

In some cases fusion of the bones in your midfoot may ease your pain and aid your mobility.

Midfoot osteotomy

An osteotomy is a procedure usually performed to correct damage caused by osteoarthritis or a deformity.

Minimally invasive hip replacement

A minimally invasive hip replacement is an advanced tissue-sparring procedure to replace a damaged hip joint with an artificial ball and socket prosthesis.

Minimally invasive knee replacement

Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) for knee replacement involves the use of specialised techniques and tools to minimise incision size and reduce impact to surrounding muscle and tissues.

Orthotics

Orthotics (sometimes called foot orthotics, shoe inserts or orthoses) are devices placed inside your shoes to restore the biomechanic balance to your legs and feet and realign your posture.

Osteotomy

An osteotomy is a procedure usually performed to correct damage caused by osteoarthritis or a deformity.

Patella stabilisation

During patela stabilisation either torn ligaments are repaired or a tendon may be repositioned.

Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma treatment uses a patient's own blood to promote the healing of injured tendons, joints, muscles and ligaments.

Subtalar arthroscopy

Over time the bone surfaces in your subtalar joint can suffer wear and tear due to injury or arthritis. If conservative treatment methods are not working for you your surgeon may recommend investigation or treatment using arthroscopy.

Subtalar fusion

Your surgeon may investigate your subtalar joint using arthroscopy. If you are still experiencing pain and instability your consultant may recommend subtalar fusion.

Tendon problems

The tissue that attaches muscles to a bone is called a tendon. Repetitive activities or an injury can cause pain, tenderness and swelling in any tendon area.

Tendon transfer in foot and ankle

The tissue that attaches muscles to a bone is called a tendon. A tendon transfer usually is performed under a general anaesthetic.

Tibial osteotomy

An osteotomy is a procedure usually performed to correct damage caused by osteoarthritis or a deformity. A tibial osteotomy is performed when only one side of your knee shows damage.

Toe joint fusion

If the stiffness in your big toe (hallux rigidus) does not respond to conservative treatment your consultant may recommend toe fusion.

Toe joint replacement

When conservative treatments do not resolve big toe stiffness (hallux rigidus) or when the joint is severely damaged your consultant may recommend toe joint replacement.

Toe surgery

The three main toe problems that can be resolved with foot surgery are Deformity (mis-shapen), Pain in the toe joints and Metatarsalgia (pain in the front part or ball of your foot).

Triple Fusion

The movement and flexibility of your foot involves three joints - the subtalar, the calcaneocuboid and the talo-navicular joints. Patients with painful arthritis or a deformity in these joints may benefit from triple fusion.

Unicompartmental knee replacement (UKR)

If your knee is damaged in only one compartment you may be a candidate for unicompartmental knee replacement. Your surgeon only replaces the damaged compartment with metal or plastic components.
