Dedicated to the diagnosis and management of knee injuries and orthopaedic knee conditions, the Yorkshire Knee Clinic represents an innovative partnership of Consultant Knee Specialists, Surgeons and associated professionals.
Prof. Nick London, David Duffy, James Newman & Jon Smith are specialist knee surgeons in a private knee surgery clinic offering knee injury treatment and the provision of knee arthroscopy, ACL surgery and knee replacement.
Arthritis of the knee is usually caused by wear (osteoarthritis) although there are some other less common causes. Severe wear (when the joint surface wears down to bone) usually causes considerable pain and patients struggle with activities. There are some simple measures which can improve the knee but often partial or total knee replacement is recommended if these fail.view full details
The key to achieving the best possible outcome for all knee injuries is early accurate diagnosis because delays can compromise recovery. The knee specialists at the Yorkshire Knee Clinic work collaboratively with expert musculoskeletal radiologists (using the latest imaging techniques) and specialist physiotherapists to provide rapid diagnosis and a clear treatment plan for all knee injuries, from simple knee meniscus or ligament injuries to complex injuries.view full details
A rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) causes the knee to become unstable particularly when twisting. Longer term, it increases the risk of the knee wearing out early (osteoarthritis). These injuries can be managed with by a combination of physiotherapy and ACL reconstruction surgery. Early knee specialist advice is critical to make the best possible recovery and to avoid further injury such as a secondary meniscal cartilage tear.view full details
