Knee Replacement

If your knee is severely damaged by arthritis or injury, you’ll probably find simple activities, such as walking or climbing stairs difficult. You may even begin to feel pain while you are sitting or lying down.

We’ve helped hundreds of people like you get rid of their knee pain and get mobile and active again.

What is knee replacement surgery?

Knee replacement surgery (arthroplasty) involves removing the damaged joint surfaces and replacing with an artificial knee joint made of metal, plastic and/or ceramic. The surgeon will make a cut on the front of the knee and fix the replacement to the bone using acrylic cement. The incision will be closed with stitches or clips.

Who am I ?

I am a consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon based in Cheshire, specialising in knee replacement surgery. I will provide you with all the information you need to understand your knee condition. I believe in shared decision making. Giving you information about your problem allows you to actively take part in decisions about which treatment option is best for you.

I will give you personalised quality care, specialist diagnostic tests and treatment for all your knee problems.

Treatment information

  • People who benefit from knee replacement surgery often have:

    Moderate or severe knee pain while resting, either day or night

    Difficulty walking for more than a few minutes without significant pain

    Chronic knee inflammation and swelling that does not improve with rest or medications

    Knee deformity — a bowing in or out of your knee

    No improvement with other treatments such as anti-inflammatory medications, cortisone injections,
    lubricating injections, physical therapy, or other surgeries.

  • You should be able to walk without assistance around six weeks after surgery. It can take up to three months for any pain to settle and up to a year for any swelling to completely disappear.

    Depending on your line of work, you should be able to return between six and 12 weeks after the surgery.
    Your knee will be in recovery for up to 24 months after your surgery, as muscles are slowly restored through exercise and scar tissue heals.

  • Knee replacement surgery is generally a safe operation with excellent results.

    The complication rate following total knee replacement is low. Serious complications occur in fewer than 2% of patients.

    Possible complications are infection, blood clots, bleeding, damage to blood vessels and nerves around the knee, numbness around the scar and leg. The implants can loosen with time and it could be necessary to redo the operation.

    These complications are rare and the vast majority of patients experience excellent pain relief following knee replacement.
