Knee replacement booklet ACL booklet Patellofemoral problems booklet

The various information sheets available are summarised below.

Please click on the links on the left to access the complete information sheet.

1. Knee replacement: Joint surfaces worn out by arthritis are replaced by an artificial knee joint.

2. Unicompartmental knee replacement: Only one compartment of the knee is worn out by arthritis and is replaced by a partial or 'half' knee repalcement.

3. Knee arthroscopy: 'Keyhole' surgery is used to diagnose and cure cartilage, meniscus and ligament problems. It is usually performed as day stay surgery.

4. Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL): The ACL is commonly torn in a twisting injury during sport and often leads to the knee being unstable. The ACL may be reconstructed to restore stability to a knee that gives way.

Further information sheets are being prepared.
