About London Knee Clinic

London Knee Clinic provides a comprehensive specialist service for the diagnosis and treatment of knee pain, knee injuries, osteoarthritis and knee deformities. We treat sports injuries of the knee including anterior cruciate and posterior cruciate ligament and meniscal tears.

At London Knee Clinic we have considerable experience in meniscal surgery, including meniscal repair, meniscal augmentation and meniscal replacement surgery, including meniscal transplantation. We also have a particular interest in patello-femoral problems and anterior knee pain, plus major interests in partial knee replacements, and do partial and total knee replacements with a very short hospital stay. We do not use a tourniquet for any of our surgery and we use blood transfusions in less than 1% of cases. The majority of our surgery is done on a day case basis. We take video clips of all our arthroscopies (keyhole surgery) and provide a copy of this to our patients for discussion following surgery.

We have close links with a number of physiotherapy units where many of our patients are sent for non-surgical treatment of their knee problems, as appropriate, or for post-operative rehabilitation after surgery.

London Knee Clinic is based at St.Olaf House, at The London Bridge Hospital, which provides the very highest standards of medical care in a comfortable, clean, newly-refurbished hospital. We are situated overlooking the South Bank of the River Thames, between London Bridge and Tower Bridge, within easy reach of the City and with excellent transport links.

Orthopaedics

 
Arthroscopy
 
Joint Replacement Surgery
 
Knee Arthroscopic Washout
This refers to washing out the knee joint through small incisions 5 to 10 mm long. An arthroscope (fibre-optic telescope) is inserted into the joint through one incision and very dilute salty water is washed through the knee to remove unwanted material from inside the joint. It has been used as a treatment for arthritis, however a washout on its own has not been found effective and it is usually combined with other procedures such as removal of loose bodies or trimming of a torn cartialge.
 
Knee Reconstructive Surgery
 
Knee Replacement
The term knee replacement is much less than it sounds. There are various types of knee replacement but most of them involve a resurfacing procedure in which a skim of bone is removed from the upper part of the shin bone (tibia) and lower part of the thigh bone (femur). The surface is then replaced using a metal on plastic bearing.
 
Kneecap Removal
This is a very rarely performed operation these days. Removal of part of the kneecap may however become necessary. A bupartite patella is where the kneecap is in two pieces - usually one large piece and an extra small piece. It can be necessary to remove the smaller piece in some cases. Some patients develop overgrowth of the kneecap due to arthritis, usually affecting the outer side. Once again partial removal of the kneecap may be required in such a case.
 
Orthopaedist Consultation
Consultations for new patients generally take 30 or 40 minutes and will often involve a gait analysis, discussion and examination, and where appropriate review of x-rays and MRI scans and recommendations for treatment.

Diagnostic Imaging

 
Medical X-Ray
Various types of imaging technique are available. In most cases an MRI scan of the knee is most appropriate. Some cases will need plain x-rays and special x-ray techniques such as CT scans. Ultrasound scans are also useful in some cases and your consultant will advise you which form of imaging technique is appropriate in your case.
