Knee conditions vary from acute injuries such as meniscal tears and ACL tears to the degenerative conditions such as osteoarthritis.
Professor Papantoniou offers a range of surgical treatments.
Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACL recon)
Total knee replacement (TKR)
Professor Papantoniou performs TKR in a minimally invasive (MIS) manner. Often referred to as keyhole surgery, this term is better reserved for arthroscopy. The incision for a MIS knee is the smallest hole we need to see all the relevant structures.
Computer navigated knee replacement (Comp Nav)
Currently Professor Papantoniou performs almost all his knee replacements as both minimally invasive (MIS) and computer navigated. Computer navigation allows intra-operative adjustment of the surgical cuts to match the specific anatomy of each patient. This allows a more consistent balancing of the knee with anticipated long term benefits for the patient.
