Knee joint arthrosis
The so-called gonarthrosis is one of the most frequent signs of wear and tear of the joints. It is a sign of wear that causes severe pain and can lead to joint stiffness. The team around Dr. Demetz advises and treats those affected with the help of state-of-the-art technology and innovative therapeutic approaches.
Rupture of the anterior cruciate ligaments
In the case of an often occurring anterior cruciate ligament tear, the affected person expresses a yielding of the knee joint and load-related pain. The standard treatment for anterior cruciate ligament tear is arthroscopic cruciate ligament reconstruction with endogenous tendons and immediate physical therapy accompanied by a physiotherapist.
The dislocation of the kneecap leads to the injury of the stabilizing ligaments. Depending on the age and activity of the affected person, stability can sometimes be achieved with tapes, orthoses and physiotherapy. However, a physically active person will be able to reach his previous level of performance faster and more reliably through surgical band stitching.
The acute meniscal injury is associated with swelling, pain on exercise and limitation of mobility; in case of large cracks it may even cause a knee block. An MRI examination shows the exact extent of the injury, whereupon specific therapy recommendations can be given.
