Revision Hip Replacement
This means that part or all of your previous hip replacement needs to be revised. This operation varies from very minor adjustments to massive operations replacing significant amounts of bone.
Total Hip Replacement
Total Hip Replacement (THR) procedure replaces the hip joint with an artificial device (prosthesis) to relieve pain, improve function and restore joint movement.
Several types of operations are used for patients who experience recurrent patella dislocation or persistent patella instability symptoms despite physiotherapy. The type of operation performed depends on the individual factors affecting each patient, sometimes a combination of operations is required.
Osteotomy around the knee is an operation to alter the alignment of the leg. It is mainly used in the treatment of arthritis in young patients to avoid knee replacement but also has a role in the treatment of complex knee instability.
Sports injuries occur when playing indoor or outdoor sports or while exercising. Sports injuries can result from accidents, inadequate training, improper use of protective devices, or insufficient stretching or warm-up exercises. The most common sports injuries are sprains and strains, fractures, and dislocations.
Arthroscopic Knee Surgery
Knee arthroscopy is keyhole surgery used for both the diagnosis and treatment of knee conditions.
It allows the inspection and assessment of the cavity of the knee joint and allows treatment, such as removal of meniscal tears, articular cartilage flaps and loose bodies to be performed at the same time.
Revision Knee Replacement
This means that part or all of your previous knee replacement needs to be revised. This operation varies from very minor adjustments to massive operations replacing significant amounts of bone
Total Knee Replacement
A total knee replacement (TKR) or total knee arthroplasty is a surgery that resurfaces an arthritic knee joint with artificial metal and plastic replacement parts called the ‘prosthesis’. The aim is to relieve pain, improve function and restore joint movement.
A dislocation occurs when extreme force is put on a joint, allowing the ends of two connected bones to separate. Ligaments are flexible bands of fibrous tissue that connect various bones and cartilage.
A bone fracture is a medical condition in which a bone is cracked or broken. It is a break in the continuity of the bone. While many fractures are the result of high force impact or stress, bone fracture can also occur as a result of certain medical conditions that weaken the bones, such as osteoporosis.
