Knee surgery procedures performed by Mr Shair


Total knee replacement

This involves replacing a damaged, worn or diseased knee with an artificial joint.  Mr Shair uses the least invasive surgical techniques, where possible.  Waiting times for operations are short and The Orthopaedics and Spine Specialist Hospital has had no cases of MRSA since opening in 2005


Cartilage grafting

Osteoarthritis is caused by the cartilage in the knee joint wearing away allowing the bone surfaces to grind together, resulting in damage and severe pain.  This is particularly problematic in younger people, as a second knee replacement operation would probably be necessary in time.  Ahmed Shair is at the forefront of a technique to replace the cartilage damage in early arthritis with a bone graft from the patient's hip.  He is a published author on this subject and his work has been recognised.


Arthroscopic surgery for sports injuries to the knee

Using arthroscopic (key hole) surgery, Mr Shair is able to repair all sports injuries affecting the ligaments and cartilage in the knee, including torn anterior cruciate ligaments and meniscus tears.  This method of surgery is more beneficial for the patient as it involves less postoperative pain, a shorter stay in hospital and a shorter recovery time.
