Knee

Soft Tissue Injuries Meniscal Surgery (Torn Cartilage), Repair and Meniscectomy are often treated through arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery. Arthritis can be amenable to arthroscopic day case surgery. In more advanced cases total joint replacement may be required along with a short in patient stay.

Mr. Blewitt has maintained an interest in conditions affecting the knee over the years in practice as a consultant surgeon. He is particularly interested in the role of arthroscopic treatment not only in the management of meniscus tears but also to help with the pain and mechanical symptoms accompanying early osteoarthritis in the active young patient.

Mr. Blewitt has a particular interest in total knee replacement undertaking many procedures each year. He has written papers and helped in the editorial process of published research related to knee replacement. He is actively involved in the assessment of new components in knee surgery through controlled trials.

Mr. Blewitt is able to offer a service in the assessment and management of a range of knee conditions from sports injuries to meniscal tear to early arthritis and advanced arthritis requiring joint replacement.
