Dr Jason McDarra performs a wide-range of knee surgery procedures. He specialises in knee joint replacement and arthroscopic (“keyhole”) surgery to address a range of underlying conditions and injuries. He employs the latest minimally invasive surgical techniques when performing knee surgery.
For patients who wish to remain active, knee reconstruction or replacement surgery might be the best option for regaining quality of life.
Many painful or debilitating knee conditions are responsive to surgical correction. Knee surgery can provide excellent return of function and greatly restore your quality of life.
The knee joint is a complex structure involving the articulating surfaces of the three bones that meet at the knee (the femur, the tibia and the patella) as well as multiple ligaments, tendons and soft tissue structures that provide stability, support and motion to the joint.
Injury to the ligaments, tendons or bones at the joint can occur either chronically or acutely – arthritis, meniscus tears and ACL rupture being prime examples. As well as being painful, these injuries or conditions can cause stiffness, deformity or instability of the joint. If left untreated, many acute conditions can progress and eventually lead to full-fledged arthritis.
He is committed to patient care and strives for positive patient outcomes by working towards relieving pain and restoring function and flexibility, thus improving mobility. His primary goal is to work with you to get you back to your active lifestyle and help you restore your quality of life.
