Webinar: Knees Arthritis - Facts and Fiction on the Latest Treatments

This event is available to purchase on-demand and was first delivered on 30th June 2022. Once you've purchased the course, you can watch it immediately from your Oryon Develop dashboard by logging into your account.


The knee joint is the second most likely orthopaedic problem (after back pain) to present to any MSK practice, with knee injuries accounting for 41% of all sport injuries. However, what is the role of surgery and what is the role of physical therapy, and when is conservative management better than surgery, and vice versa?


We are delighted to welcome back Mr Ian McDermott, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon. He will be debating a key topic - arthroscopic knee surgery versus physical therapy and conservative management. Is it a conflict or a collaboration? 


Mr McDermott will be weighing up the benefits of knee arthroscopy and whether we can manage an ACL tear conservatively. We'll also be looking at the role, if any, of intra-articular joint injections and focusing on debunking the misinformation and explaining the actual science towards knee arthroscopy.


Join us for an interactive session with Mr Ian McDermott for a discussion and debate about the role (or otherwise!) of arthroscopic knee surgery in modern-day practice.


During the talk, Mr McDermott will be exploring different treatment methods for common knee injuries. He will discuss what is the best option to use and when. 


Meniscal tear is a common knee injury, Mr McDermott will be looking at when knee arthroscopy is best used as a treatment option and when it’s not.

Another common knee injury is ACL tears, he will address the symptoms and causes. Depending on the severity of an ACL injury, treatment may include rest and rehabilitation exercises to help regain strength and stability. Mr McDemott will consider whether it should be managed conservatively. 


Arthroscopic surgery for ACL injuries is more commonly performed by orthopaedic surgeons compared to open surgery. Mr McDermott will discuss if he thinks they work and if it’s the best option.

Joint injections are another option and he will be explaining what their role is for treating knee injuries.


To conclude, Mr McDermott will be addressing common misinformation given on knee arthroscopy and debunking them. He will explain the science behind the procedure.
