The knee is the largest and one of the most important joints in the body. It plays an essential role in movement. Without your knees you would have problems with sitting, walking, running and with many other forms of movement.

The knee joint may seem like a simple hinge joint, but it is a very complex joint that has many parts that move in different directions and many supporting structures. Not surprisingly it is commonly injured and can undergo degeneration (arthritis) as we get older. This can result in pain and the inability to perform the activities you love to do.

At Adelaide Hip and Knee Centre our specialised team understands the knee. We use the latest techniques to help you recover from your knee problems quickly to allow you to live the life you want.
