Knee prosthesis

This surgery is recommended in cases of severe knee osteoarthritis, where pain is persistent and movement is severely impaired, and where diagnostic X-Rays have confirmed the severity.

In general, we mainly recommend these treatments to the over 60’s, both with a view to the duration of the prosthesis, and because as age increases, demand for physical performance falls. The prosthetic surgery should be delayed as long as possible in patients who continue to maintain sufficient functionality and have tolerable pain. If osteoarthritis affects the articulation of a young person, operations such as osteotomies are preferred as they correct the axes of load, reducing the stress on load-bearing joints.

When helping patients through their post-operative recovery, we first aim to recover their full range of motion, then muscle strength, then their co-ordination through a customised programme of aquatherapy and physiotherapy. This method usually has patients back on their feet after around 10-15 days following surgery, and on their way towards full recovery.
