Expert ACL reconstruction surgery in London
The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is responsible for keeping the knee stable. A tear to the ligament (ACL rupture) can occur as a result of a twisting or overextending the knee and is one of the most common injuries seen in sportspeople, particularly affecting footballers and skiers. Mr Jennings offers arthroscopic knee surgery to replace the ligament with a tendon harvested from the patient's own body, restoring stability to the knee and providing an excellent probability of a return to full sporting activity.
Cartilage transplantation: an exciting new treatment for knee pain
Knee joint cartilage is a thin soft tissue that stops the bones surfaces of the knee rubbing against each other. It is possible for the cartilage to become damaged in younger people, particularly as a result of sporting activities, and treatment is essential to prevent the early development of osteoarthritis.
Mr Jennings is able to provide the very latest specialist treatment for cartilage damage, cartilage transplantation. Using minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery, a small sample of healthy cartilage is harvested and sent to the laboratory to be cultured. A few weeks later the cartilage cells are implanted into the damaged area of the knee, going on to form new cartilage and relieve symptoms such as knee pain, locking, swelling or collapse. Carried out under special licence, this technique has a success rate of over 90%.
