Knee Specialities – The knee joint is of particular interest to Dr Smith. He performed more than a thousand arthroscopic (“key-hole”) surgery procedures on the knee including primary and revision cruciate ligament reconstructions. The patella is also the source of many sports related injuries and during his fellowship in Sydney, Australia Dr Smith focused on different realignment procedures for the kneecap that may lead to better function and pain relief.
Knee replacement surgery is performed with the added advantage of computer navigation. This results in a better-balanced knee that may lead to better performance and long-term survival of the prosthesis.
