A highly experienced knee surgeon

He has a particular expertise in the treatment and management of sports injuries to the knee, working closely with physiotherapists to return patients to previous levels of fitness and sporting activity in the shortest time possible.

He is also actively involved in research and has published studies on outcome measures in patients following ACL reconstruction and types of meniscal tears.

Knee arthroscopy in South East London and Kent
Mr Sait is highly trained in knee arthroscopy (keyhole surgery), a minimally invasive technique used to investigate and treat knee symptoms such as pain, swelling, locking and stiffness. By means of a miniature camera (arthroscope) inserted through a small incision, he is able to fully assess the structures inside the knee joint, including the cartilage covering the joint surfaces, the ligaments, and the round discs of cartilage that act as shock absorbers in the knee (the meniscii). If necessary, he is then able to wash out loose pieces of bone and cartilage (debridement) or treat a torn meniscus using specially designed instruments introduced through further small incisions.
Knee arthroscopy is usually performed as a day procedure. On the whole, patients usually find that the use of several small incisions rather than one large one reduces the amount of pain felt following surgery and speeds up recovery.
