Hip, Knee and Pelvis Treatment at Cleveland Clinic London
Conditions we treat:
- ACL injuries: injuries to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), the ligament in the center of the knee that connects the thigh bone to the shin bone, preventing abnormal rotation of the knee joint.
- Arthritis of the hip or knee.
- Hip impingement syndrome: abnormally shaped hip joint that causes bones to painfully rub together.
- Osteoarthritis: one of the most common types of arthritis, likely to develop as you age.
- Torn meniscus (the cartilage that provides cushion between your thighbone and shinbone).
Treatments and care:
We provide a wide range of hip, knee and pelvis diagnostic procedures and treatments, including:
- Chondral surgery to repair damage to the articular cartilage – the soft white cartilage that covers the ends of the bones.
- Ligament repair and replacement.
- Meniscal repair and transplants to repair torn meniscus knee cartilage (the cartilage that provides a cushion between your thighbone and shinbone).
- Minimally invasive keyhole/arthroscopic surgery where only a few small incisions are required to diagnose and treat the knee or hip, making recovery quicker and less painful than with an open approach.
- Osteotomy surgery to realign the knee joint.
When other treatments haven’t worked, total or partial joint replacement surgery may offer the best long-term improvement for hip or knee pain. Types of joint replacement and related surgeries include:
- Hip replacement.
- Hip revision surgery is performed to repair an artificial hip joint that has been damaged over time due to an infection or normal wear and tear.
- Hip resurfacing is an alternative to joint replacement surgery, often a good option if you are younger.
- Kneecap replacement (patellofemoral).
- Partial knee replacement (unicondylar).
- Total knee replacement.
