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.

  • 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 Arthritis

    I have been experiencing mutli joint pain for 15+ years (46years of age) with many GP's stating 'OA' In more recent times my local GP has starting running some blood tests with results ranging from ANA elevated and borderline for Lupus and C Reactive Protein at 13. I am really confused with result, could you help me?

    OA stands for Osteoarthritis. It is the general type of arthritis that people refer to when talking about joint degeneration. It describes the loss of cartilage that occurs due to multiple reasons.
    When you have an "Inflammatory Arthropathy" this is one where there is abnormal inflammation in a joint, the results in damage to the joint. This includes conditions such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, SLE, and Psoriatic Arthritis. These are managed by treating the inflammation first. Often these medications are required lifelong, but great advances have led to people living normal lives, without developing severe joint disturbances.

    Once you have arthritis in a joint, such as your Hip or Knee, and there is full loss of cartilage, surgery can be considered. This includes Total Hip Replacements, Total Knee Replacements or Fusions (Moreso for smaller joints).

    CRP of 13 is mildly elevated, but can be for many reasons. A Rheumatologist would be most helpful here.

    I hope this helps you.
