Occasionally only a small part of the knee joint may develop premature wear because the alignment (or shape) of the knee is not ideal (knock knees or bandy legs). When the alignment is corrected through osteotomy (cutting the bone) the damage can be halted or reversed.

This technique can be combined with articular cartilage treatment to enhance the recovery of a damaged joint.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much physiotherapy will I require following a knee replacement?

Every patient is different but post knee surgery you should receive perhaps six or more physiotherapy appointments.
