The knee is an amazing joint which allows a huge amount of complex sliding, rolling and rotational movement, and which sustains very large forces throughout the arc of motion. Damage or disorder of the ligaments, cartilages, muscles, tendons, joint lining and bones of the knee can rapidly lead to pain, swelling, instability and dysfunction of the joint. Mr. Dennis Edwards and Mr. Joel Melton are consultant knee surgeons dedicated to excellence in knee surgery. They share this website as they both have specialist expertise in knee surgery and have a similar sub-specialist knee practice in both the NHS and private healthcare. By focusing on the knee, they are committed to achieving the very best outcomes possible. This position allows them to gain further expert experience by attracting regional, national and international specialist opinion and complex patient referrals. It is their hope that you will find the information on this website helpful and that it will be a useful resource to further your understanding of knee pathology and some of the options for treatment of this remarkable joint.
