Knee surgery and treatments

Treatments and surgery to help treat knee problems

Knee pain is the most common musculoskeletal complaint that brings people to their doctor*. With today's increasingly active society, the number of knee problems is increasing. Knee pain has a wide variety of specific causes and treatments.

It is vital to make an accurate diagnosis of the cause of your symptoms so that appropriate treatment can be directed at the cause. If you have knee pain, some common causes include:

  • Arthritis
  • Ligament damage
  • Cartilage damage
  • Dislocated kneecap.

If you want to see an orthopaedic consultant specialised in knees, Spire Portsmouth Hospital offers fast appointments at your convenience.
