Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Reconstruction
The ACL is the most likely ligament in the knee to be damaged. Tears to it are one of the most common knee injuries and are usually caused by overstretching. This type of injury commonly happens during sports, when stopping suddenly, or during impact.
Meniscal Repair Surgery
The meniscus can be damaged in several ways. This damage is often referred to as a tear. Tears may be full, meaning the meniscus has been split entirely or partial, and are divided into two types: "Acute" tears, often as a result of a sudden movement during sports or "chronic" or "degenerative" tears related to wear and tear.
Knee arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure wherein small tools are used to correct the knee. This surgical method can be used to treat a range of knee problems from osteoarthritis to simply investigating knee problems.
Knee osteotomy is a surgical procedure that reshapes and realigns the bones of the knee. This procedure is popular among younger active patients who want to avoid a full knee replacement. Results from knee osteotomy can include reduced or relieved pain and increased mobility.
Knee Replacement Surgery
A knee replacement is a commonly performed surgical procedure. The medical name for it is a knee arthroplasty. Both men and women who suffer with severe knee pain often choose to have this surgery. Often, their suffering is due to arthritis of the knee joints. This can cause pain and stiffness and as a result, they may struggle with mobility.
