Treatment Choice

Hip and knee injuries and arthritis are among the most commonly treated ailments in healthcare today. Many acute injuries are able to be managed with minimally invasive day surgery procedures, such as arthroscopy.

When arthritis is more severe and longstanding, joint replacement surgery is often required. The results of hip and knee joint replacement using modern technology and surgical techniques are very reliable, resulting in the best quality of life year improvement of any procedure performed in medicine.

Not all new technology or techniques are successful, and there are some well publicised examples of implants that have failed due to poor design. Dr Zicat can guide you through the various treatment options, minimally invasive surgical techniques available, and implant designs that would be most appropriate for your individual problem.

Dr Zicat also has extensive experience in revision of ageing or failed implants, that are more complex procedures, and require a more individual approach.
