Knee replacement surgery (arthroplasty) is a routine operation that involves replacing a damaged, worn or diseased knee with an artificial joint. Osteoarthritis, is the so-called wear-and-tear form of arthritis, is the most common cause for arthroplasty. This can also be called degenerative joint disease.

Osteoarthritis, is the so-called wear-and-tear form of arthritis, is the most common cause for arthroplasty. This can also be called degenerative joint disease.

Arthritic knee joints may need to be repaired either partially or totally – known as partial knee replacement and total knee replacement. If the bone disease is restricted to the inner side of the knee (the ‘medial’ side), the surgeon will simply reshape those damaged surfaces. The repaired surfaces on that one side of the knee are then partially covered with a combination of metal and plastic bearings. For this reason, a partial (also called “UNI”) knee replacement is considered less invasive than total knee replacement, in which all compartments of the knee joint are replaced.

Matt believes in a patient-centered approach to surgery and will discuss with you the best treatment options for your individual complaint. All of Matt’s joint replacement patients and others undergoing major procedures enjoy the benefits of an enhanced recovery programme (ERP) which targets minimum pain, anxiety and sickness asit chief objectives.
