Using the power of innovative science and modern technology, Dr SW Clinic can help you live your best pain-free life without the need for invasive surgery.
A Baker’s cyst, also known as a popliteal cyst, is a fluid-filled sac that forms at the back of the knee joint.
It develops when synovial fluid, which lubricates the knee joint, accumulates and bulges out from the joint space into the space behind the knee.
Baker’s cysts are often associated with underlying knee conditions, such as arthritis or meniscus tears.
It’s important to note that while treatment can alleviate the symptoms of a Baker’s cyst, the cyst may recur if the underlying knee condition is not properly managed. Therefore, addressing and managing the underlying knee condition is a crucial aspect of long-term care.
At Dr SW Clinics, we can treat a range of pain conditions using Regenerative Medicine and pain-relieving injections. If you are tired of living with pain and looking for a non-surgical intervention, then Dr SW Clinics could help you get back to your optimal quality of life.

- Knee Joint Conditions: Baker’s cysts are typically a secondary condition that occurs in response to an underlying issue within the knee joint. Common causes include osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and meniscus tears.
- Synovial Fluid Accumulation: The cyst forms when excess synovial fluid is produced within the knee joint, often as a result of inflammation or irritation.
Common symptoms of Baker’s cysts include:
- Swelling or lump behind the knee, which may be visible or palpable.
- Pain or discomfort, especially when bending or extending the knee.
- Stiffness in the knee joint.
- Occasionally, the cyst may rupture, leading to sudden pain and swelling in the calf or lower leg.
Depending on the joint issue you present with, there may be a couple of ways to diagnose your pain and thereby find you a lasting solution.
Firstly, you will have a telephone consultation with one of our highly trained patient advisors. This patient advisor will ask you a series of pre-assessment questions to better understand your personal needs.
You will then be invited for a consultation with one of our leading experts. To better gain an understanding of the problem, the Consultant may suggest you receive an x-ray or an MRI.
What is an x-ray?
A diagnostic test that can help identify what issues are causing the pain.
What is an MRI?
A diagnostic test using a magnetic field and radio waves for a detailed image of both joint and soft tissue.
What is an ultrasound?
Typically a handheld device that provides an on the spot image of the soft tissue.
Once we’ve received the results of your diagnostic tests, our team will be able to advise you on next best steps to get you pain free.
