Orthopaedic surgeons specialise in diagnosing, treating, and preventing musculoskeletal conditions, which include bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles. Their expertise often encompasses areas such as sporting injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumours, congenital disorders, and trauma.
Knee replacement surgery is a procedure where the damaged or diseased knee joint is replaced with an artificial one. It’s usually recommended for severe knee damage due to arthritis or injury, aiming to restore mobility and relieve pain.
Knee arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that allows surgeons to view, diagnose, and treat conditions inside the knee joint using small incisions and a camera (arthroscope), reducing recovery time and post-operative pain.
ACL reconstruction is a surgical procedure to replace a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), one of the key ligaments that help stabilise the knee. The surgery involves replacing the ACL with a graft, followed by rehabilitation to restore knee strength and function.
Common signs include a sudden, severe pain at the time of injury, a loud “pop” or snap during injury, rapid swelling, loss of range of motion, and instability or “giving way” with weight-bearing. If these symptoms persist, a consultation with an orthopaedic surgeon is advisable.
Recovery time varies based on the individual and procedure. For knee arthroscopy, for example, most patients can return to daily activities within a 1-2 weeks. However, a knee replacement recovery may take a few months for full functionality.
