An expert in partial knee replacement surgery
Osteoarthritis of the knee is the process whereby the
protective cartilage that covers the bone surfaces of the knee joint is
worn down over time or damaged as a result of traumatic injury. The
loss of cartilage allows the ends of the bones to rub together, causing
inflammation, pain and eventual deformity. As we lead more and more
active lives, carrying sporting activity on well into middle age and
beyond, arthritis, once a condition of the elderly, is being
increasingly seen in younger patients.
Total knee replacement (TKR), to replace the whole joint
with an artificial implant, is not always an ideal solution for a
younger patient as the implant does wear and will need more complex
surgery to replace it within 15-20 years, or sooner if the patient is
very active. Suitable for patients with arthritis confined to just one
area of the knee joint, partial knee
replacement (PKR) is a less invasive procedure involving a smaller
incision and less bone removal, restoring function and a natural
range of movement to the knee. Revision surgery to replace the implant
or change to a TKR in the future is also more straightforward than
An early adopter of PKR technology and techniques, Mr
Evans is highly skilled in the procedure and experienced in carefully
selecting the patients who would benefit most from the operation.
