Knee Procedures

Specialist Knee Care

Professor Cathal Moran is one of Ireland’s leading knee specialist surgeons providing care for knee pain and injuries.

Many patients and athletes can be returned to a high level of performance, work and play without knee surgery.  Occasionally advanced reconstruction is required, but minimally invasive keyhole surgery options are used where possible, with an emphasis on the most up to date techniques in modern orthopaedics and sports medicine.

Please see our Animations link below to view the techniques we use for your knee surgery where this is required.

Biologics & Regenerative Medicine

In orthopaedic sports medicine, the premise of regenerative medicine—or, the more accurate term, restorative medicine–is to accelerate healing and to decrease scar formation, adhesions, pain, and inflammation at the site of injury or surgical repair. (We can’t yet regenerate damaged tissues and joints or make them normal again. Rather, we’re creating a more favourable healing environment.)

Our Regenerative Medicine Clinic is based at UPMC Sports Surgery Clinic in Dublin. Professor Moran has extensive experience in the field of Orthobiologics and Regenerative Medicine, providing opinions for both patients and colleagues in regenerative medicine, biologics and cell therapy. At Regenerative Medicine Dublin, our team are committed to providing patients access to a promising collection of biological treatments in Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine.

Biologic treatments include cell therapy,  blood components and other natural substances that harness the body’s own power to promote healing and decrease inflammation.

Where suitable, we will discuss the role of such cell and biological injections for your knee pain/injury with you
