Knee surgery is a medical specialty that focuses on the treatment of injuries and diseases of the knee. It is an important part of orthopedic surgery, which is aimed at restoring function and relieving pain in the knee. Groruddalsklinikken is a recognized clinic in Norway that offers high-quality knee surgery.
The knee is a complex joint made up of several structures, including bones, ligaments, tendons and cartilage. Damage or disease in any of these structures can lead to pain, reduced mobility and disability. Knee surgery aims to diagnose and treat these problems to improve the patient’s quality of life.
There are different types of knee surgery depending on the specific condition or injury to be treated. Some common types include:
1. Arthroscopic surgery: This is a minimally invasive procedure where a small camera-guided instrument, called an arthroscope, is inserted into the knee through small incisions. This allows the surgeon to see the inside of the knee and perform necessary repairs or removal of damaged tissue.
2. Knee replacement surgery: This is an operation where the damaged or worn knee joint is replaced with an artificial prosthesis. This type of surgery is usually recommended for patients with severe osteoarthritis or injuries that cannot be treated by other means.
3. Ligament reconstruction: This is a procedure performed to repair or replace damaged ligaments in the knee. Common ligament injuries include anterior cruciate ligament injuries and medial collateral ligament injuries. Ligament reconstruction can be done using autografts (the patient’s own tissue) or allografts (donor tissue).
Groruddalsklinikken is known for its expertise in knee surgery and has an experienced team of orthopedic surgeons who specialize in the treatment of knee problems. The clinic offers thorough diagnosis, individually adapted treatment plans and aftercare to ensure the best possible result for the patients.
It is important to note that knee surgery can be an extensive procedure, and it is important to pay close attention to the rehabilitation process after surgery. Physiotherapy and exercises can be crucial in restoring strength, mobility and function in the knee.
In addition to knee surgery, Groruddalsklinikken also offers other orthopedic services, including treatment of shoulder, hip and foot problems. The clinic has modern equipped facilities and attaches great importance to patient comfort and well-being.
