Meniscus repair and transplantation. The meniscus is a wedge-shaped pad of cartilage designed to absorb friction. Damage to the meniscus is frequently referred to as torn cartilage.
Torn ligament reconstruction. We perform corrective surgery for the knee’s four ligaments, which provide stability to the knee joint.
- ACL: anterior cruciate ligament
- MCL: medial collateral ligament
- LCL: lateral collateral ligament
- PCL: posterior cruciate ligament
Sprains. Damage to the knee’s ligaments.
Fracture of the kneecap. Also known as patella, kneecap treatment includes removal of all or a portion of the bone.
Knee Treatment Options
Partial knee replacement. A partial knee replacement surgery replaces one or two of a damaged knee's bony parts with man-made components. The knee has three bony parts: the femur, tibia and the patella, or kneecap.
Total knee replacement. During knee replacement surgery, damaged bone and cartilage are removed from the thighbone, shin bone and knee cap and replaced with an artificial joint made of metal alloys, high grade plastics and polymers.
Joint Preservation surgery. Surgery to restore function and eliminate pain, aimed at delaying arthritis or other degenerative conditions.
Knee Arthroscopy. Minimally invasive technique where surgeons use small incisions to diagnose and treat problems, including arthritis and cartilage damage.
Non –surgical treatment including physical therapy and medication.
Arthroscopic surgery. Minimally invasive surgery used to promote a quicker recovery and cause less trauma to the tissue.
Cartilage reconstruction. Specializing in ACI, autologous chondrocyte implantation, a procedure where cartilage is regrown using a patient’s own cartilage from another part of the body.
Osteotomy. The knee or leg bone is broken and realigned to straighten out the knee and transfer the weight load.
Platlet-rich plasma therapy. Plasma from a patient’s blood is extracted and re-injected into the injury site.
