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
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 plastic
prosthesis, and personalised knee replacement where MRI technology is
used to custom fit the prosthesis to the patient.
