Case study: Tina (Consultant: Mr Ian McDermott)
Biological Knee Replacement
Tina was suffering very badly with her knee and went to see Mr Ian McDermott, one of very few knee surgeons in the UK to offer Biological Knee Replacements – major complex multiple soft tissue reconstructive knee surgery. The patient, who is very sporty, tore the cartilage in her knee 10 years ago, before having the tear removed. However, she started feeling persistent pain in her knee and it was confirmed once she had seen Mr McDermott, that her knee had deteriorated and was in very bad condition. Mr McDermott performed a Biological Knee Replacement to repair her injury last year, and since fully recovering she is now able to cycle and rock climb again.
