Paul’s approach is to treat the whole person, not just the injured body part, to ensure return to the goals the patient is currently unable to achieve.
Paul offers a spectrum of treatments for the Hip and Knee, from injectables to the joint or subchondral bone (Subchondroplasty) arthroscopic procedures to preserve or regenerate cartilage or reconstruction procedures for ligaments or for those with severe joint damage to a minimally invasive patient specific joint replacement.
Hip Block Injection
Injection of steroid into the hip joint that calms the inflammation down. This is performed as a diagnostic and therapeutic procedure. It buys a few months of time so therapy can take place more effectively.
Hip Arthroscopic Surgery
Keyhole surgery to treat labral tear / articular cartilage damage and remove the extra abnormal bone causing the impingement. Purpose of surgery is to return to activity and reduce requirement for Hip Replacement.
Patient Specific Hip Replacement
Surgery for a severely damaged joint which is replaced via minimally invasive surgical techniques. 3D planning ensures accurate implant placement that is customised to the patient with reduced risk of limb length discrepancy and a faster better functional recovery.
Arthroscopic Meniscal Surgery
Keyhole surgery to treat meniscal tear via repair or resection. Aim is to repair utilising latest techniques and technology and return to activity / reduce requirement for knee replacement.
Arthroscopic ACL Surgery
Keyhole surgery to reconstruct the ACL with a graft which is usually 1 or 2 of the hamstring tendons. Latest techniques involve anatomic placement with maximal footprint coverage. Additional ALL reconstruction may be required as well.
Articular Cartilage Preservation and Repair
There are multiple techniques and treatments options with variable indications and success rates and the appropriate options will be discussed. Patient age, the site and size of the damage, the integrity of the meniscus and ACL, and alignment of the...
A new technique to treat the cause of pain in osteoarthritis (which is due to bone marrow necrosis in the area under the bare bone of the arthritis). Calcium Phosphate filler is injected into this area under X-ray control during...
Patient Specific Knee Replacement
Surgery for a severely damaged joint which is replaced via minimally invasive surgical techniques. 3D planning ensures accurate implant placement that is customised to the patient with a faster better functional recovery.
