Diagnostic knee gait analysis
A full assessment of a knee injury is crucial to determine the exact nature and severity of the problem, allowing for implementation of the most effective and appropriate treatment plan.
In addition to an in-depth consultation, X-rays and MRI scans, The London Knee Clinic undertakes gait analysis of the knee as a routine diagnostic procedure. Involving the placement of four digital recorders at key points on the leg and knee, gait analysis provides a comprehensive functional assessment of knee movement. The technique can also be used to monitor the progress and outcome of treatment, and can be carried out in either in a clinical setting or in the field.
Collagen Meniscal Implant (CMI) surgery in London
Damage to the shock absorbing discs of cartilage (menisci) in the knee is a common sports injury, often seen following a bad tackle, a fall or a twist to the knee. Meniscal cartilage has a very poor blood supply and although meniscal repair is possible in some cases, the only treatment option for many meniscal tears is to trim away the torn cartilage. While this procedure relieves the symptoms associated with the tear, it makes the knee more susceptible to the early development of osteoarthritis in the future.
Mr Evans is now able to offer the revolutionary Collagen Meniscal Implant (CMI), a biocompatible implant made from purified collagen. Suitable for patients who have lost part, but not all, of a meniscus, the CMI is stitched into the defect in a torn cartilage as part of an arthroscopic (keyhole) procedure. The porous implant then acts as a scaffold for the body to regenerate new meniscal tissue as part of a natural repair process, eventually being totally absorbed and replaced by native new tissue.
