Other knee surgeries and procedures
If your knee condition has not responded to non-surgical methods such as medication or physiotherapy, your doctor may recommend surgery as a way to alleviate pain and repair structural damage.
As well as offering total knee replacement, partial knee replacement and revision knee replacement, there are many other procedures available to treat common knee complaints. Arthroscopic procedures, including ACL reconstruction and partial meniscectomy, are frequently used to treat knee problems related to giving way, pain and locking. Whether your knee condition is caused by injury or wear and tear, talk to a specialist today about the range of treatment options available.
If any part of your knee joint is affected by injury or disease, you may be in need of knee reconstruction surgery to restore function and mobility.

A meniscectomy is a procedure to repair or remove any damaged tissue that is causing knee pain. The extent of the surgery will depend on the severity of the damage.
