Osteoarthritis of the knee - Centre for Joint Surgery and Sports Medicine – ZurichAt the Centre for Joint and Sport Surgery at the private Pyramide Klinik am See in Zurich, PD Dr. med. Andreas L. Oberholzer offers a broad range of treatment options for osteoarthritis of the knee, meniscal tears and torn cruciate ligaments.

The focus is also on the treatment of problems around the kneecap as well as instability of the knee joint. Of paramount importance in the Centre is the special tissue-conserving and soft-tissue orientated surgical technique for insertion of an artificial knee joint.

As with all surgery, great importance is attached to biocompatible materials. Sound clarification and treatment of painful knee replacements are also paramount.


Osteoarthritis of the knee

Osteoarthritis of the knee is wear of the knee joint cartilage, whereby every person is prone to normal wear of joint cartilage. If the genetically predetermined impact-loading capacity of the cartilage is less than the actual load, damage to the cartilage can occur after impact load.

With advanced osteoarthritis of the knee the following symptoms may occur:

  • Load-induced pain
  • Movement-induced pain
  • Start-up pain
  • Inflammatory pain with articular effusion 
  • Deformation of the joint (bow legs or knock knees)
  • Instability (unsteady gait with a risk of falling)
  • Restricted movement
  • Muscle tension, muscle contractions and muscle weakness
