Knee cartilage surgery

What is knee cartilage surgery?

Although minor damage to the cartilage may heal by itself, more severe injuries usually need surgical treatment. This is normally carried out using keyhole surgery as a day case under a light general anaesthetic. In more complex cases, other procedures may be advised as well. These include knee realignment surgery (osteotomy).

When there is severe arthritis in the knee and joint preservation surgery isn’t possible, Adrian is able to offer partial and total knee replacement surgeryAdipose tissue therapy is sometimes recommended alongside other types of surgery.
