Osteoarthritis is the most common cause of knee pain. There are many treatment options such as neuromuscular conditioning, physiotherapy, injections, cell therapy and bracing which are extremely useful in managing arthritis. Knee replacement should always be the last option.
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, we are proud to offer 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.
