with surgical material

Penso que a artrose no joelho (gonartrose) foi sujeita a uma operação cirúrgica com algum tipo de reconstrução, pelo que se refere o material cirúrgico que poderá ter sido colocado.

Desconheço a terminologia própria para indicar que as artroses da anca e do joelho, (coxartrose e gonartrose na gíria) foram intervencionadas.
Como a colega Liz Askew diz, seria mais claro tivesse sido utilizada a expressão " com tratamento cirúrgico", o qual poderia ser a implantação de uma prótese ou um outro tipo de tratamento.

Notes to answerer
Asker: But the literal translation does not work in English. This means nothing in English.

Asker: What is surgical material, and what is it for? Is it part of the body? Or a tool used by the surgeons? This is not a medical term in English.
