ORTHOPAEDIC PROCEDURES

Arthroscopy

Knee arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure in which a small camera is inserted into the knee in order to take a closer look inside. This procedure is used once a diagnosis is made to treat the pathology.

Knee
Replacement

Also known as arthroplasty, this is when a patient receives total or partial knee replacement surgery. You may need this if you suffer from knee arthritis, resulting from injuries or degenerative diseases. Symptoms of such knee problems often include severe joint pain, stiffness, swelling and restricted motion.

Ligament
Reconstruction

Your knee is made up of four major ligaments. A torn ligament in the knee may occur during sporting activities and can result in severe dysfunction of knee movement. During this procedure the torn ligament is reconstructed with tissue graft in order to stabilise the knee joint and restore optimal function.

Sports Orthopaedic Treatment

Excessive training and, sporting accidents often result in injuries requiring treatment. We provide a number of treatments, both surgical and non-surgical, for conditions you may present with.
