KNEE SURGERY

Knee Surgery & Patient Care

Dr Coffey treats the whole spectrum of knee disorders. Many patients will need treatment for the following disorders:

Some of the procedures that may be required are:

  • Arthroscopy
  • Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction
  • Total Joint Arthroplasty (Total Knee joint replacement)
  • Partial Joint Replacement
  • Uni Compartmental Arthroplasty
  • Patellofemoral Arthroplasty
  • Tibial Osteotomy

There are 3 knee bones that make up the joint: Femur (thigh bone), Tibia (shin bone), Patella (knee cap).

The patella sits inside the tendon of the thigh muscles at the front of the knee resting in the patellar groove of the femur.

Common knee injuries vary from minor falls to major falls. The knee ligaments and cartilage are the most damaged.
