Knee information

For the knee, we treat and perform surgery for:

  • sports injuries
  • soft tissue reconstruction, such as anterior cruciate reconstruction
  • realignment surgery
  • cartilage regeneration
  • osteoarthritis including osteotomy, unicompartmental knee replacement, total knee replacement
  • revision knee replacement.

The Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre is a leading centre for the development and continued research in unicompartmental knee replacements. Currently about 50 percent of the knee replacements we perform are unicompartmental. This has advantages for patients appropriately selected. They recover more quickly and have improved function following the replacement, compared to total knee replacements.
