Knee replacement surgery (arthroplasty) is a routine operation that involves replacing a damaged, worn or diseased knee with an artificial joint.
Osteotomy is a modern surgical operation, designed to realign the knee joint and thus reduce pain and improve mobility.
Almost any part of the body can be injured, including the muscles, bones, joints and connective tissues (tendons and ligaments). The knees are particularly prone to injury.

Dear Jo I think I don't need an appointment anymore. I have to admit that I don't feel pain in my knee anymore! I walk, kneel without any problem.
Dear Mr Dawson Just dropping a quick email to let you know I am fit and well following my 12 week recovery period after my knee surgery.
I had been strugling with knee problems for as long as I remember. The work you have done on my knees has really changed my life.
Mr Dawson, Just a quick line to say a BIG THANK YOU and to give you some further positive feedback for the use of tomofix for the high tibial osteotomy procedure.
