Knee replacement surgery in Chester
Knee replacement surgery is now a routine operation to replace a worn or damaged knee joint with an artificial implant. Most commonly performed when the pain and stiffness of an arthritic knee is affecting everyday life, knee replacement surgery can relieve pain and restore mobility for up to 20 years.
Mr Banim is highly experienced in all forms of knee replacement surgery, including total knee replacement, partial knee replacement and revision knee replacement, and can advise on which technique and type of implant would be most suitable in each individual case. He also offers the latest personalised knee implant made by ConforMIS
. Created specifically to fit the unique anatomy of each individual patient, this implant requires less surgical time to fit than a conventional implant, minimises the amount of bone that needs to be cut away and results in a natural anatomic feel and alignment. The precise fit of personalised implants also increases their longevity.
Rapid diagnosis and treatment of sports injuries to the knee
A specialist in sports surgery, Mr Banim works closely with physiotherapists and other health professionals to provide a comprehensive service for sportsmen and women with knee injuries. His initial role is to provide expert and rapid assessment of any problem using the latest diagnostic technology, including MRI scanning, where necessary. Usually, patients can be treated non-surgically using relevant therapies, however where surgery is indicated, Mr Banim always works with a therapist postoperatively to rehabilitate the patient and return them to sporting activity in the shortest time possible.
