A better quality of life

Knee Clinic

Visit our dedicated Knee Clinic which is part of St Joseph's Centre of Excellence for orthopaedic care.

At St Joseph's Hospital we will give you the support you need before, during and after your knee surgery. 

The knee is the largest joint in the human body and its mechanics are extremely complicated. It is a pivotal hinge joint, which permits flexion and extension as well as some internal and external rotation.

As knees support almost the whole weight of the body, they are vulnerable to both acute injury and the development of osteoarthritis.

The most common symptoms associated with knee problems are:

  • pain
  • swelling or ‘effusion’
  • instability
  • locking and catching
  • stiffness
  • knee weakness
  • meniscal problems
  • cartilage problems
  • ligament injuries
  • common knee ligament injuries
  • knee arthritis

Knee treatments include:

  • non-surgical knee treatments
  • drug treatments
  • surgical treatment
