The knee is a complex hinge-type joint, and there are a number of conditions that could cause any or all of the following knee symptoms:

  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Giving way
  • Locking
  • Stiffness

If you are concerned about your knee pain, you should speak to your GP, and you can ask to be privately referred to one of our Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeons.
