About Knee Osteoarthritis

The knee joint is a hinge joint between the top of the shin bone (tibia) and bottom of thigh bone (femur). One of the most common reasons for damage to the knee joint is osteoarthritis.

Osteoarthritis leads to wear and tear of the joint whereby the cartilage covering the knee is worn a way. As a result, you may experience pain around your knee along with stiffness, reduced mobility, and an inability to carry out your daily routine and recreational activities.

Highly Experienced

I am an experienced Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon with 22 years of experience working as an NHS doctor and as a consultant since 2018.

Qualified Surgeon

I attained my higher surgical training in Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery and have also done two prestigious fellowships in lower limb arthroplasty.

All my operations are carried out at first class facilities with hi-tech equipment so you can rest assured you are receiving the highest quality treatment.

Ongoing Patient Care

All my patients receive the best care possible, including consultations with myself before and after the operation and care from our healthcare team on the day.

Mr Magra was very thorough and informative regarding his diagnosis and plan. A full hip replacement was decided upon due to my general physical fitness. At the follow up appointment a couple of months later, he was very pleasant and his examination and advice was very thorough and I left the appointment very satisfied.

Explained from X-ray need to new knee clearly; came to check ok after operation (grateful elective operation went ahead on due date given COVID); 6 weeks on good result, as shown on before and after X-rays by Mr M; healing well and can walk ok – so far, very happy recovery progress. 3 physio sessions so far helpful.

Patient at Westmorland General Hospital

I had a total hip replacement in late March and am delighted with the result. Mr Magra was extremely kind and explained the procedure fully, and following my review today I feel totally confident going forward.
