What is knee arthritis?
Arthritis is a term that means inflammation of the joints. Although there are many types of arthritis, most knee pain is caused by just three types: osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and post-traumatic arthritis.
The most common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Knee arthritis makes it difficult to do many everyday activities, such as walking, climbing stairs and playing with your grandchildren. It can stop you from working and enjoying certain activities and is a serious disability for many people.
Although there is no cure for arthritis, there are many treatment options available to help you manage your knee pain and keep you active.
There are many treatments I can use to treat your knee pain that do not involve surgery. These can include advice on lifestyle changes, like specific exercise programs and weight loss, tablets, and treatments like specialist regenerative knee joint injections.
I also perform specialist knee replacement surgery which allows people to get rid of their knee pain and get mobile and active again.
