Knee Surgery & Surgery Options

Knee Surgery Information and Treatment Options

When it comes to knee surgery, there are a variety of procedures that can be performed depending on the patient's specific condition. Knee surgery may be necessary for those who have sustained a severe injury, have chronic pain or instability, or have degenerative conditions such as osteoarthritis. The most common types of knee surgery include arthroscopy, partial knee replacement, and total knee replacement. Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a small camera to diagnose and treat knee problems. Partial knee replacement involves replacing only the damaged part of the knee joint, while total knee replacement involves replacing the entire joint. Recovery time and success rates vary depending on the type of surgery and the patient's overall health. Learn more about the different types of knee surgery that Mr Garrett specialises in below.

Knee Surgery: Services

Total Knee Replacement Surgery

A knee replacement is performed on patients with a worn-out or arthritic knee joint, where symptoms have failed to respond to non-operative treatments such as painkillers and physiotherapy. Robotic Total Knee Replacement is now available too. Find out more about knee replacements here.

Knee Arthroscopy

There are many knee operations that can be performed using an arthroscope (keyhole surgery) such as for torn meniscus, anterior knee pain, early stages of arthritis and the removal of loose bodies. More about knee arthroscopy can be found here!

Robotic Assisted Knee Surgery

Mr Simon Garrett is proud to offer robotic orthopaedic procedures for patients requiring a total knee replacement or total hip replacement, by making use of a MAKOplasty robotic arm.
