Dedicated Knee Clinic · part of St Joseph's Centre of Excellence for orthopaedic care
At St Joseph's you get the support you need - before, during and after 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:
- knee arthritis
- knee weakness
- ligament injuries
- cartilage problems
- meniscal problems
- swelling or ‘effusion’
- locking and catching
- common knee ligament injuries
Knee treatments include:
- non-surgical knee treatment
- surgical treatment
- drug treatment
