The ankle and foot is biomechanically a very difficult and complex joint to understand and to treat surgically. Many problems may arise round the ankle region including ligament sprains and tendon injuries.
The knee joint is of particular interest to Dr Smith. He performed more than a thousand arthroscopic (“key-hole”) surgery procedures on the knee including primary and revision cruciate ligament reconstructions.
The shoulder is also the focus of many sports related injuries, especially in the young active athlete. Many structures can be injured around the shoulder joint including the tendons and ligaments.
