Knee Conditions

Meniscus Tear

Each knee contains a medial (inner) and lateral (outer) meniscus (cartilage) that are critical to the knee’s biomechanics. A meniscus tear often results in pain, swelling, and clicking in the knee. The majority of meniscus tears do not heal if left alone.

Knee Arthritis

Knee Arthritis is a very common disabling condition, that increases in frequency with increasing age. This condition often limits the patient’s ability to return to the activities they enjoy. There are a number of treatment options, ranging from simple analgesia to a knee replacement.

Focal Cartilage Damage

Articular (‘Joint surface’) cartilage loss can occur for many reasons. When found in isolation, there are several treatment options aimed at providing pain relief, restoring cartilage, and returning your function. These lesions are often best appreciated at the time of an arthroscopy.

Patella (Knee cap) Dislocations

Patella (‘Knee-cap”) subluxations/dislocations are most frequently seen in younger patients. This condition can be very problematic for patients, with some experiencing daily subluxation episodes. Our management is aimed at stopping these episodes, to restore function, and reduce the risk of progressive arthritis.

MCL Injury

The Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL) is a strong band of tissue that runs from the femur (Thigh bone) to the tibia (shin bone) on the inside of the knee. MCL injuries frequently occur due to a sudden impact on the outside of the knee while playing sport, however they can also occur following a twisting injury.

Anterior Knee Pain

Anterior knee pain represents chronic pain over the front of the knee and is commonly seen in adolescent athletes, especially females. Causes range from a muscle imbalance around the knee joint to softening of the knee cap cartilage (‘Chondromalacia’).
