Some orthopaedic surgeons specialise in disorders of the knee. They deal with conditions such as knee arthritis, and damage to the knee ligaments. The operations and treatments that knee specialists offer include total and partial knee replacement, arthroscopic knee surgery, and knee ligament reconstruction (including anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction).
There is a professional association for orthopaedic surgeons in the UK who have a special interest in elbow and shoulder surgery and treatment - the British Elbow and Shoulder Society (BESS). The British Elbow and Shoulder Society was founded as a result of an increasing interest in shoulder and elbow surgery in the UK in the early 1980s. Most UK elbow and shoulder specialists will belong to this organisation.
The British Orthopaedic Association is the professional association for over 4,000 surgeons and training surgeons treating injuries and disorders of bones, joints and their associated tissues.
