• Treatment Methods

    Before considering a partial knee replacement, doctors use other non-operative treatment methods to alleviate pain.

    1. Analgesic, anti-inflammatory drugs (e.g. Voltarol, Brufen etc.
    2. A change of lifestyle (with regard to sports, weight, nutrition etc.)
    3. The use of orthopaedic aids such as a crutch, a stick or an elasticated support.
    4. Physiotherapy and regular gentle exercise.
    5. Arthroscopy (smoothing down of the surfaces and removal of debris etc.)
    6. Hyaluronan injection into the knee.

    None of these measures however, have a long term and lasting effect.  All too frequently only an artificial joint replacement either partial or total can really alleviate the problem and restore mobility.
