Common Conditions & Procedures
Anterior Hip Replacement
The Anterior Hip Replacement is a special way of performing a Hip Replacement that offers a number of advantages over the standard method.
Hip arthroscopy is performed through small incisions (key hole surgery) using a camera to visualize the inside of a joint.
The labrum is a special type of cartilage that helps keep the joint stable and allows the hip joint to function properly. When the labrum tears, it causes deep groin pain.
A bursa is a fluid-filled sac that functions as a gliding surface to reduce friction between tissues of the body. Bursae are found near joints, especially where tendons attach themselves to the bone.
A Total Knee Replacement (also called Total Knee Arthoplasty) is a surgical procedure designed to replace the severely diseased knee joint with an artificial knee joint.
Knee arthroscopy, also known as ‘key hole surgery’, is an operation which enables the surgeon to look inside the knee joint and perform surgery on it without making big cuts to expose the joint.
Shoulder arthroscopy is surgery that uses a tiny camera called an arthroscope to examine or repair the tissues inside or around your shoulder joint.
Rotator Cuff Tear
A rotator cuff tear is a tear of the tendons on the rotator cuff, near to where the tendons attach to the top of your humerus (upper arm bone).
