This is the surgical reconstruction or replacement of an arthritic joint. Hip and knee replacements are the most common major orthopaedic procedures. The goals are to restore function and relieve pain.
A knee arthroscopy is used to investigate knee problems, including inflammation and injury, or to repair damaged tissue or remove a Baker’s Cyst. An arthroscope – a telescope on a long, thin cord – is inserted through small cuts in the skin. Arthroscopies enable the patient to recover faster from surgery.
In this surgical procedure, tight structures on the outer part of the kneecap are released to ease knee pain caused by the kneecap being pulled away from its normal alignment.
Total knee replacement surgery involves replacing diseased or damaged joint surfaces in the knee with metal and plastic components shaped to allow continued motion of the knee.
