Mr Deepu Sethi - Your Knee Surgeon
Mr Sethi is one of few surgeons who operates exclusively on the knee.
He has trained in the UK and Australia and treats the full sprectrum of knee problems, from a sports injury in the professional athelete to treating the arthritic knee in the senior population.
Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Injuries
ACL injuries are very common and patients often require surgery so that they can return to sport.
Mr Sethi uses modern key hole techniques to reconstruct the ACL ligament and most operations are carried out as day-case surgery.
Knee arthritis can be a painful and debilitating condition. Mr Sethi uses a wide range of techniques to reduce pain and improve quality of life.
Where possible, Mr Sethi uses "Joint Preservation" surgical techniques to delay the need for joint replacement surgery as long as possible.
Osteotomy operations around the knee can provide excellent pain relief for more active patients.
In correctly selected patient, Knee Replacement surgery can give excellent results.
Patella (Kneecap) Instability
The kneecap can be the cause of many symptoms in the knee, the majority of which can be treated without surgery.
However, when the kneecap is unstable or dislocates surgery may be helpful.
In general, when the kneecap dislocates more that once or continues to feel unstable Mr Sethi would discuss potential surgical treatment to prevent pain, instability and future degeneration in the joint.
