Location: Orthopaedics 360 Total hip replacement

Dr Liew was a delightful man who obviously loves his profession. He speaks to you in a manner you can understand and is happy to answer any questions you may have. He is very thorough and extremely prompt at both appointments and with my operation. I was seen within 2 weeks of sending the referral.
Could be improved: Nothing, I can't fault his professionalism nor his service.

Questions solved

%{Count} solved patients' doubts in Doctoralia


  • Question about Knee arthroscopy

    Whats the best solution with an unstable patella? MRI says: Patellofemoral OA. The medial femorotibial joint is abnormal with chondral attenuation. Reactive oedema is present in the medial tibia with intraosseous cyst formation.The medial meniscus is truncated. Physio says not to op but to expect improvement in 6-8wk.

    We will have to know if you dislocated your patella before. It all depends also on how old you are, and what activities you want to do. If you are <40, the examples above are suitable. In addition to Vastus Medialis strengthening, you should focus on your core muscles, which studies have shown can help to realign the normal alignment of your knee cap. If this fails, sometimes surgery is required, but does require a CT scan to see what your bony alignment is like before determining what surgery you should receive. All the examples above are options. (Tibial Tubercle Distalisation or Medialisation; MPFL reconstruction; Trochlearplasty). It is a difficult condition to treat once you have bad arthritis. In Australia, patellofemoral joint replacements are relatively uncommon and require a surgeon who has experience in this.

    The rest of your MRI show generalised arthritis, so I would opt to treat your knee with a total knee replacement, as a patellofemoral replacement is likely to fail in your case.

  • Question about Knee arthroscopy

    After knee arthroscopy I will be attending ANZAC day which is 2 days after my surgery and I plan on using crutches but not marching. I am using them to replace the time I should be icing, is this a good idea or will it stress out the knee whether I am walking on it or not? Its not an all day thing.

    Depending on why you are having a knee arthroscopy will determine if you will be comfortable walking. In general, patients who have a knee arthroscopy have very little pain or discomfort after their surgery and can walk unaided. It is preferred if you can keep your wound clean and dry after your surgery until they heal, which can take approximately 10-14 days.
    For most patients having a knee arthroscopy, they should be comfortable enough to partake in Anzac day traditions without major difficulties.
