Thank you for visiting my website.
My name is Richard Hartley and I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon specializing in all aspects of knee surgery.
The knee is a fascinating joint consisting of three separate compartments that combine to allow the knee to roll, pivot and glide.
Knee function is determined by the integrity of the muscles, tendons, ligaments, menisci (cartilages) and articular surfaces.
Symptoms of pain, swelling, reduced movement, locking and instability can arise as a result of injury or damage to these components of normal knee function.
As a current or future patient, I hope that you will find the information contained in this website useful.
