Minimally invasive knee replacement surgery in the West Midlands
Modern knee replacement surgery to replace a worn or damaged knee joint with an artificial implant is a highly effective treatment for knee arthritis, relieving symptoms and restoring mobility in tens of thousands of patients in the UK each year.
As well as performing total knee replacement surgery and partial (unicompartmental) replacement surgery, in suitable patients Mr Geeranavar is able to offer a minimally invasive total knee replacement procedure that involves less disruption to the quadriceps tendon (the thigh muscle that attaches to the kneecap). Usually performed under computer guidance for accuracy, minimally invasive knee replacement surgery has been shown to result in shorter recovery times compared to conventional total knee replacement and lends itself well to accelerated rehabilitation techniques.
