Arthroplasty

Arthroplasty is a surgical procedure to repair or replace a damaged or diseased joint.

Autologous Chondrocyte Implantation

ACI (autologous chondrocyte implantation) and MACI (matrix-induced chondrocyte implantation) are advanced tissue-engineered technologies used to repair damaged articulating surfaces, mainly in the knee joint.

Bicompartmental (Total) Knee Replacement

If your knee is damaged in all three areas (medical, lateral and patellofemoral) you may be a candidate for bicompartmental or total knee replacement.

Bone Graft

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

Cartilage reconstruction

Cartilage is the thin tissue that covers bone surfaces providing smooth, friction free movement.

Cartilage resurfacing

If conservative treatments for damaged cartilage are not successful your consultant may recommend cartilage resurfacing.

Chondroplasty

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

Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT)

Shockwave therapy is a non-surgical treatment, and works by delivering impulses of energy, targeted to specific damaged tissues within the abnormal tendon.

Image guided joint injections

If your swollen or painful joints, ligaments or tendons do not respond to conservative treatments your consultant may recommend image guided joint injections.

Joint resurfacing

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

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

This is a procedure to remove your damaged knee joint and replace it with an artificial 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.

Manipulation under anaesthesia (MUA)

Under general anaesthetic your surgeon will move your stiff joint to a full range of motion, stretching the surrounding muscles and freeing the joint capsule.

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.

Patella stabilisation

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

Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment (PRP)

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

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.

Total Knee Replacement using Robotic-arm assisted technology

This type of knee replacement uses robotic-arm assisted technology for greater accuracy. Use of this technology has been shown to result in shorter hospital stays, smoother recovery and increased satisfaction.

Unicompartmental (partial) 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.

Unicompartmental (Partial) Knee Replacement Robotic-arm assisted technology

This type of partial knee replacement uses robotic-arm assisted technology for greater accuracy. Use of this technology has been shown to result in shorter hospital stays, smoother recovery and increased satisfaction.
