Dr Agolley has a special interest in injuries of the hip and knee. Speak to an experienced surgeon today to get back to the sport you love.
Acute Hip and Knee Sports Injury Clinic
Some injuries require urgent assessment and potentially earlier intervention by a surgeon to ensure a faster recovery. Dr Agolley runs an acute sports injury clinic.
Hip Labral Tear
Labral tears usually occur due to shape problems of the hip joint in young active individuals. The most common shape problem is hip impingement or femoroacetabular impingement.
Hip Ligamentum Teres Tear
The Ligamentum teres is a source of groin pain common in young athletes, dancers and gymnasts. It also occurs in athletes with Femoroacetabular impingement. Ligamentum teres tears can be a debilitating condition.
Hip Hamstring Tear
Hamstring Tears (Proximal hamstring avulsion) of the tendon from the pelvis are becoming recognised much more commonly. If left untreated it may leave the athlete with chronic thigh pain, a protracted recovery course and a weaker hamstring compared to those surgically repaired
Knee ACL Injury
Commonly, the ACL is injured in a non-contact injury where the knee ‘twists’ during foot landing or push-off. The feeling or sound of a “pop” may be experienced, followed by pain, swelling and instability of the knee joint.
Knee Meniscal Tear
The meniscus in the knee, are two C-shaped fibrocartilage structures that are positioned between the femur and the tibia. Due to the complex movements of the knee joint, combined with general wear and tear with life, the meniscus can be prone to injury, particularly with twisting and squatting.
Patella instability is a condition where the patella (knee cap) is not guided centrally in the knee, and falls off to the side. This causes pain and apprehension in movement, stopping patients from having an active life.
