Total Knee Replacement

Knee replacement surgery is one of the most common procedures in Orthopaedic Surgery. The conditions that may necessitate a knee replacement include osteoarthritis, avascular necrosis and previous fracture.

Knee replacement surgery has one of the highest success rates today with over 90% of patients still functioning well fifteen years post-surgery. In 2019, over 65,000 knee replacements were performed in Australia.

Total Knee Replacement surgery can be complicated and the anatomy of people can vary. Computer technology is therefore an integral part of planning and performing the operation itself.

All patients are able to walk the day after knee replacement surgery, helping to facilitate an effortless transition to rehabilitation or home.

Revision Knee Replacement

Revision Total Knee Replacement surgery is performed for worn-out knee replacements, loosening, infection and trauma, and can be part of the treatment of fractures around a Knee Replacement.

Knee Arthroscopy

Knee arthroscopy is performed for acute knee injuries (ACL rupture, meniscal tears, patellar dislocations) and chronic knee conditions. Knee arthroscopy can also be performed during knee fracture surgery. This ensures meniscal injuries are addressed, rather than missed, and can greatly reduce the amount of soft tissue dissection during surgery.

Knee fracture surgery

Knee fractures involve either the bottom of the femur (distal femur) or top of the tibia (tibial plateau). They can also occur around a knee replacement. Knee fractures represent some of the most difficult and complex injuries an Orthopaedic Surgeon can manage.
