Damage to your knee joint and limited mobility can be caused by many conditions, and it can also happen as the result of a traumatic injury, such as a rugby tackle or a bad fall on the football pitch. Some of the reasons why you might need knee surgery include:


This type of arthritis causes chronic pain and stiffness, which in turn has a negative impact on your overall mobility. This is the most common type of arthritis in the UK, occurring when the smooth cartilage which protects and cushions your joints becomes worn down over time. It tends to happen as we get older. Symptoms differ from person to person with osteoarthritis.

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)

RA is an inflammatory joint condition caused by an autoimmune process, which occurs when your body mistakenly attacks its healthy cells. This often causes severe pain, swelling, inflammation and limited mobility.

A fracture

Fractures are usually caused by a traumatic injury such as a contact sports injury, but they can sometimes be caused by a condition that weakens your knee bone, such as osteoporosis. A knee fracture can be painful and require immediate medical attention.

Knee bursitis

Bursitis happens when the fluid filled sacs (known as bursa) that cushion and protect your joints become inflamed. This can result in pain and swelling in your joints. Usually it presents as a dull, aching pain that can persist even when you take traditional painkillers or try gentle stretching.

Whatever the cause of your knee pain, our consultants at The Park Hospital in Nottingham can help by providing a range of surgical treatment options.

We offer a variety of surgical treatment options for knee pain, including:

Knee arthroscopy

An arthroscopy can help diagnose and treat a range of problems in your knee. It is a keyhole operation, which means it's performed using a few small cuts. Your surgeon will use specially designed surgical tools to access your knee joint through a few small cuts. One of these tools will be a camera (known as an arthroscope), allowing them to see inside your knee and perform surgery.

Knee replacement surgery

Knee replacement surgery involves removing bits of your knee joint that have become damaged and replacing them with artificial elements, also known as implants or a prosthesis. This should remove the source of your pain, helping you to walk more easily and letting you get back to living life as normal.

ACL reconstruction surgery

ACL reconstruction surgery is a type of knee surgery that involves repairing or reconstructing your anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). This can be done using several different methods.

Knee osteotomy

An osteotomy is an operation to shorten, lengthen, or change the alignment of your bone. It is often performed to straighten a bone that has healed crookedly following a fracture.

Meniscus repair surgery

Meniscus repair keyhole surgery involves repairing your torn meniscus (passing sutures or special fixation devices into your knee through small cuts.

No matter the surgery you have at The Park Hospital, your treatment will be tailored to your exact needs and performed by a multidisciplinary team of dedicated healthcare professionals.

You can usually see an orthopaedic specialist for your initial consultation within 48 hours of booking your appointment with us.

During this initial appointment, your consultant will ask about your general health and medical history. They will want to know about any existing medical conditions, as well as the current symptoms you are experiencing.

In order to assess your symptoms and make an accurate diagnosis of your pain, your consultant will next carry out a gentle physical examination of your knee. In some cases, they might also send you to get an X-ray, which will be done onsite by one of our radiologists. All of this helps your consultant to make a diagnosis of the cause of your knee pain.

Once they have identified what's causing your knee problems, they will share more information about surgery and whether it could be the right treatment for you.

The time you'll wait between your initial consultation and having surgery (or any other treatment you're recommended) will differ from person to person. For example, someone who has suffered a traumatic injury may need to be seen very quickly. Your consultant will provide you with a fixed timeline for treatment.

Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon Mr. Reshid Berber describes the debilitating nature of knee pain and how it can be effectively treated with replacement surgery.

"Osteoarthritis of the knee can cause debilitating pain and restricted movement that can interfere with your physical and emotional health. If arthritis has led to advanced damage within your knee, then surgery might be the best treatment option for you.

"Knee arthritis can mean everyday activities and exercise are difficult to perform. It can affect people of all ages, as well. Knee surgery, such as joint replacement surgery, is aimed at improving your quality of life and getting you back doing the things you enjoy."

Sue Bower, a former patient at The Park, shares her experience having knee surgery at our hospital:

"After several months of severe pain in my left knee, I found that walking was becoming more and more difficult, so I referred myself to Mr Reshid Berber.

"At the appointment, he carefully explained what was happening to my knee, showing me on the X-ray and a model where my knee was damaged. He put me at ease, providing me with reassurance and confidence that a knee replacement was the best treatment option for me.

"At my six-week post op appointment last week, he was happy with the result of the operation. Everything went well. I am now pain-free, the scar is healing well and will hardly be visible later. I am so very grateful to Mr Berber. He is very professional and skillful, but he is also compassionate, sympathetic, and kind. I highly recommend him, along with all the staff who work alongside him at The Park, including the physio staff."
