Knee Surgery and Preservation - the Specialist's Approach

Surgeons at the Gelenk Klinik believe in offering a range of treatment alternatives, and have the expertise and experience to successfully treat, using minimally invasive techniques. Our surgeons tailor the treatment path to your own specific requirements and only escalate the level of intervention when absolutely necessary. Our aim in every case is to preserve as much of your natural tissue and joint as possible.

Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) - reconstruction following rupture

The anterior cruciate ligaments (ACL) at the front and back of the knee, are the central pillars of the joint and as such, the essential stabilisers. They connect the front top of the tibia (lower leg bone), to the rear bottom of the femur (thigh bone). A rupture of one of the ligaments causes instability, which if not treated, leads to considerable attritional damage to the cartilage in the knee joint (arthrosis). Clinical and experimental examinations have proven that a damaged frontal cruciate knee ligament will not heal by itself.

Total Knee Replacement - restoring painfree mobility for patients with severe osteoarthritis

Total knee replacement (endoprothesis)

If a partial knee replacement is no longer possible (the damage to the joint surface is too great), the knee joint surface is replaced completely with "artificial knee joint". This means that the worn ends of the bones are replaced with metal and plastic parts.

With a total knee replacement, the choice of method used to connect the upper and lower leg components, is most important. There are two prosthesis options for this, "fixed bearing" and "mobile bearing". The mobile bearing prosthesis uses a moving "meniscus" disc, more closely resembling the natural structure of the knee.

Meniscus Repair and Meniscus Surgery

The Role of the Meniscus in the knee joint

Located in the space between the distal femur and the tibial plateau, the elastic crescent-shaped menisci (the medial meniscus and the lateral meniscus) play a number of important roles in the proper functioning of the knee. Their remarkable physical properties enable them to function as shock absorbers between the weight bearing surfaces of the knee and distribute compressive forces from the femur more evenly across the tibial plateau.

Osteotomy for Knee Realignment: Joint Preserving Bone Correction

Knee realigment can prevent osteoarthritis of the knee Knee realigment can prevent osteoarthritis of the knee ©Viewmedica

Tibial Osteotomy with Open Wedge

This surgical procedure is used in cases where osteoarthritis has affected only one side of the knee joint. The tibia is cut and re aligned so that pressure is shifted from the damaged side of the joint to the healthier side.

An in patient stay of two nights is normally required.
