Knee conditions treated by Mr Muthu Ganapathi
Mr Muthu Ganapathi offers expert treatment for a range of knee problems, including:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Meniscal tears
- Recurrent locking of the knee
- Sports injuries (excluding ACL damage)
Expert knee arthroscopy
Mr Ganapathi is skilled in the use of knee arthroscopy to investigate the cause of knee pain and problems such as locking and swelling. A thin fibre-optic tube is introduced into the knee joint via a small incision, sending back images to a monitor screen. As well as being a diagnostic tool, knee arthroscopy has a therapeutic role. Small instruments can be inserted through further small incisions to carry out procedures such as repairing meniscal tears and removing loose pieces of cartilage and bone.
Personalised knee replacement surgery in North Wales
As an early adopter of personalised (or patient-specific) knee replacement surgery, Mr Ganapathi is one of the most experienced surgeons currently using this exciting new technique in the UK today. Using advanced computer software and an MRI scan of the affected knee, he is able to create a prosthesis that is customised to the anatomy of a particular patient, producing the best alignment possible and reducing the chances of failure or complications in the future. The preplanning and accuracy of the knee replacement also mean that minimally invasive surgical techniques can be used, shortening operating times and accelerating recovery.
