Kinematic Knee Replacement Adelaide

Restoring Natural Movement with Dr Yas Edirisinghe at Ortho Precision Adelaide

Chronic knee pain can significantly impact your quality of life, robbing you of your mobility and joy of movement. If traditional knee replacement surgery seems daunting, you're not alone. Thankfully, advancements in surgical techniques have paved the way for a more natural and personalised approach: kinematic knee replacement.

At Ortho Precision Adelaide, Dr Yas Edirisinghe is a leading expert in kinematic knee replacement surgery, offering this innovative option to patients seeking a more active future. But what exactly is kinematic knee replacement, and how can it benefit you?


Understanding Traditional vs Kinematic Knee Replacement

Traditional knee replacement surgery focuses on restoring knee stability and alignment, aiming for a "straight leg" alignment in most cases. While effective in alleviating pain and improving function, it may not always replicate the natural movement and feel of your original knee joint.

Kinematic knee replacement takes a different approach, prioritising the restoration of your unique knee biomechanics. Imagine your knee as a complex puzzle. Kinematic surgery aims to meticulously reassemble that puzzle, considering:

  • Individual anatomy: Your natural bone angles, ligament tension, and joint shape are meticulously measured and replicated in the implant design.
  • Patient-specific alignment: Unlike the "one-size-fits-all" approach of traditional methods, kinematic surgery preserves your pre-arthritic leg alignment, optimising movement patterns.
  • Mimicking natural movement: Advanced implant designs like medial pivot knees allow for a more natural range of motion and rotation, resembling your original knee's function.

  • Improved range of motion: Enjoy deeper flexion and extension, allowing for activities like squatting and stair climbing with greater ease.
  • Enhanced stability and control: By replicating your natural ligament balance, kinematic surgery promotes a more stable and secure feeling in your replaced knee.
  • Reduced pain and stiffness: With accurate alignment and natural movement, pain is often significantly reduced, leading to improved function and comfort.
  • Faster recovery: Minimally invasive techniques and preservation of surrounding tissues can contribute to a quicker and smoother recovery process.
  • Increased implant longevity: By replicating your natural biomechanics, kinematic implants may experience less wear and tear, potentially extending their lifespan.

Assessing Knee Pain Severity

Knee pain can affect people of any age, and is usually caused by an injury or general wear and tear. Our knee pain assessment questionnaire is designed to assess knee pain severity on a scale from mild to severe in certain situations and determine whether specialist intervention is required.
