Specialist in knee reconstruction, arthroscopy, hip replacement and knee replacement

Knee Reconstruction

Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction has become a very common and very successful procedure over the last 2 decades.

Knee Arthroscopy

Knee arthroscopy involves keyhole surgery whereby the structures inside the knee can be looked at and treated.

Knee Replacement

Knee replacement is the surgical procedure which replaces the weight bearing surfaces of the knee joint to relieve pain and disability.

Hip Replacement

Total hip replacement is a very successful operation. It is widely regarded as being the most effectively successful operation.

Hip Arthroscopy

A hip arthroscopy is generally performed with 2 very small incisions. It is performed under a general anaesthetic. A variety of conditions can be treated.

Shoulder Surgery

Xrays as well as an ultrasound or an MRI are done prior to the surgery. This gives Mr Donohue information about what is wrong within the shoulder.
