Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon

Patients who have part of their knee resurfaced are usually more active and over years find other parts of the knee become worn as arthritis spreads with age. It is possible to resurface other areas of the knee thereby covering all eventualities.

Patients who undergo this procedure have a higher rate of activity than those having a total knee resurfacing including competitive sport, dancing, tennis, swimming and most gym activity. Many patients ski and sail.

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.
