Arthroscopic knee surgery in the West Midlands
Mr Salama is an experienced arthroscopic knee surgeon, a minimally invasive surgical technique used both to investigate knee symptoms such as pain, swelling and locking, and to treat some conditions. By means of a fibre-optic probe inserted into the knee joint through a small incision, he is able to view structures such as the bone, cartilage, ligaments and soft tissues on a television monitor. He is then able to carry out a range of procedures, as necessary, using specially designed instruments inserted through further small incisions, such as:
- Removal of loose pieces of bone or cartilage
- Meniscal cartilage repair or removal
- Anterior ligament (ACL) reconstruction
- Knee ligament repair
Expert anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction
Running diagonally through the middle of the knee, the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) plays a crucial role in knee stability. Injury to the ACL is a very common sports injury associated with sports that require rapid deceleration, twisting or sidestepping movements and awkward landings, such as football, basketball, skiing and netball. Signs that the ACL may be torn or ruptured include initial swelling and pain, followed by knee instability.
Partial tears to the ACL often respond to a period of recovery and rehabilitation, however complete tears (ruptures) do not repair themselves and require surgical treatment. Mr Salama offers arthroscopic repair of the anterior cruciate ligament using a range of tendon grafts, including those taken from the patient's own knee, hamstring or quadriceps (autografts). ACL surgery is generally a very successful procedure, fully restoring the functioning of the knee and allowing a complete return to sporting activity in over 80% of cases.
