Mr Michael Moss

Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon

Our knees are the hardest working and most complex joint in our body. When a knee is damaged or becomes injured, the simplest of every day movements and activities can become painful and, in some instances, impossible.

Regardless of whether your condition is congenital, occupational or sports related, you need a highly skilled surgeon, the latest hospital equipment and a team that will help you rehabilitate. I’m pleased to say we can offer you all of these at our locations in Chichester.

Commonly patients experience pain and swelling in the knee and find that everyday activities are uncomfortable. Walking may be restricted and sleep may be interrupted. Patients may notice instability or locking of the knee and occasionally a grinding sensation.

Though non-surgical treatments are always considered initially, if using medication and a cane aren’t delivering enough relief, you need to be referred to a consultant orthopaedic surgeon by your GP before you can be considered for surgery.

 Knee surgery is carried out in two main ways and can be either arthroscopic (keyhole), which is typically used for sports injury, meniscal or cartilage procedures, or open, which is used for reconstructive and resurfacing operations. I am an expert in both of these methods.


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.
