Focus on Meniscus Recovery
Meniscus is a C-shaped piece of hard cartilage that acts like a cushion in the Knee. A torn meniscus causes sharp pain in the knee, sometimes swelling & stiffness. It can also block knee movement and stopping your knee straighten fully.
Lincoln Knee Clinic
Lincoln Knee Clinic is a private clinic that treats Knee Osteoarthritis, knee injuries, knee cartilage condition and meniscus issues. Cartilage issues are the most common cause of knee pain in Lincolnshire.
Lincoln Knee Clinic offers treatment options such as neuromuscular conditioning, physiotherapy, injections, cell therapy & bracing can be very useful in managing knee arthritis.
Knee replacement should always be the last option. A deep understanding of the knee and how it linked to the rest of the body during movement is the key to success.
Knee cartilage has been the most studied and researched cartilage in the human body.
Being the most accessible joint for cartilage regeneration, many techniques are design specifically for the knee and have great results.
As a teaching centre of excellence in cartilage repair and joint preservation, Prof Paul Lee and MSK doctors team are proud to offer regeneration options to our patients.
Anterior Cruciate Ligament injuries are very common sporting injuries. Understanding the dynamic nature of the interaction between muscle and joint control will help in recovery and prevention of re-rupture. With a logical approach and early diagnosis, regeneration may be possible without the need for surgery. If surgery is required, we offer the all inside tendon sparing ACL reconstruction to reduce surgical insult and enhance recovery.
The patellofemoral joint is highly complex, this is because the patellar tendon attached to the quadriceps muscle that spans across the hip and knee joint. It is a common cause of anterior knee pain. Dynamic assessments such as Knee Kinesiography is an excellent technique to help us diagnose the problem. Neuromuscular conditioning can be very useful in the treatment of anterior knee pain and kneecap issues.
The biomechanics of the knee is complex, there are eight degrees of freedom possible between the thigh bone (femur) and the shin bone (tibia), before taking the knee cap (patella) into account, there are 16 million possible combinations of deformity of the bone that can affect the knee and lower limb movement. We have the expertise and technology available to understand and correct these deformities.
In order to understand the functional outcome differences produced by various implant designs, it is critical to first examine the thought progressions that led to these designs. Many of today’s popular designs still adhere to outdated kinematic theories that require less conforming tibiofemoral articulation to produce rollback. The Golden Steps Knee System restores function by replicating the natural AP stability and medial-pivot motion of the knee.
