In 20% of cases where a knee is beginning to wear, the process starts on the outside part of the knee, causing the bones to grind. Symptoms are very similar to that described for the medial part of the joint but much less common.

Similarly if caught early enough and the rest of the knee remains intact, lateral (outer) joint resurfacing is a very similar procedure to medial resurfacing.

Resurfacing the lateral side of the knee is a technically demanding procedure and some implants are not suitable. However, I have a lot of experience of this procedure and demonstrate the procedure to other surgeons. Again I use the Zimmer Uni High Flex Knee prosthesis.

Frequently Asked Questions

Joint replacements – what type of artificial implant does Mr Moss use?

Mr Moss uses a range of artificial implants, or prostheses, to replace diseased or damaged bone around joints. The implants mimic bone shape and can be made of metal, high density polyethylene or ceramic. They are made by Zimmer, the largest orthopaedic manufacturing company in the world.

Mr Moss is frequently used as a specialist advisor to Zimmer and works extremely closely with the prostheses manufacturer to develop some ground breaking products in the United Kingdom. Working this closely with Zimmer, Mr Moss has been able to successfully carry out some of the UK’s firsts for his patients.
