Knee Surgery

The knee is one of the most complex joints in the body. It is also the most injured. Problems occur when any part of the knee, such as meniscal cartilage or articular cartilage or ligaments are torn or irritated. Knee surgeries, such as ACL surgery, meniscus surgery, knee arthroscopy, or knee replacements, are minimally invasive and sometimes require hospitalization.

Anterior Cruciate Ligament Tears (ACL tears)

ACL tears are often caused by athletic or non-athletic related activity in which the knee is forced into hyperextension, twisting, or abnormal rotation. (more)

Medial Collateral Ligament tears (MCL tears)

MCL tears are often associated with other injuries and many times torn when the ACL is torn.  Symptoms of MCL tears depend on severity.  (more)

Knee Arthroscopy

Knee arthroscopy is a common procedure where the inside of the knee is viewed using a small high definition camera, often called an arthroscope. (more)

Knee Replacement

When a patient does not find relief from conservative treatment a knee replacement may be an option. During a knee replacement surgery the knee joint is replaced by metal and plastic implants. (more)
