Total Knee Replacement

Total knee replacement surgery involves the cutting away and removal of worn cartilage and bone from the end of the thigh bone, top of the shin bone and usually the back surface of the knee cap. This is one of most common procedures that I undertake and is an area of special interest. Total knee replacement surgery has excellent rates of longevity which typically show survival rates at 10 years after the procedure of >90%. It is however a difficult procedure and many reports in medical journals note patient dissatisfaction rates of between 10 - 20%. Therefore, I make every effort to try and plan and personalise the operation to each patient to get their best possible outcome. To try and achieve the best possible outcomes consideration is given to the use of computer guided surgery, detailed MRI pre-operative knee planning, individualised screening of clotting and infection risks and detailed attention is paid to post-operative pain management.
