Knee Replacement / Knee Arthroplasty
Knee Replacement Surgery, or Knee Arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure to replace the damaged surfaces of the knee with metal and/or plastic components in order to restore joint movement. Knee replacement surgery can be performed as a partial or a total knee replacement.
Knee Arthroscopy Surgery is key hole surgery that can be done alone or in association with other surgeries such as Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction or medial patellofemoral reconstruction for recurrent patella dislocation.
Arthroscopy began as a simple diagnostic tool for planning open surgery but with the development of better instrumentation and surgerical techniques many conditions can now be treated arthroscopically.
This website aims to provide useful information for both the patient and surgeon, regarding Knee Replacement and Knee Arthroscopy.
