Knee replacement surgery in Manchester and Cheshire
The ends of the bones in the knee joint are covered with a smooth, strong tissue called articular cartilage that allows them to move easily over each other, with minimal friction. The articular cartilage can become damaged through natural wear and tear (osteoarthritis) or as a result of an injury. Early arthritis or damage to the joint can be managed with arthroscopic techniques, such as washing out any loose bodies from the joint or procedures to repair the cartilage. In cases where there is severe pain and swelling resulting in a significant loss of mobility, however, surgery to replace the worn or damaged joint with an artificial one may be the best course of treatment.
Knee replacement surgery is a routine and highly successful procedure for the majority of people, restoring mobility and bringing relief from pain for up to 20 years. An expert in knee arthroplasty, Mr Kim offers the full range of modern knee replacement techniques and prostheses, including partial knee replacement for cases of early arthritis confined to just one part of the joint, total knee replacement where the whole joint is replaced with a metal and polyethylene prosthesis, and personalised knee replacement where MRI technology is used to custom fit the prosthesis to the patient.
