ACL Reconstruction (Patellar Tendon Graft Technique)
This procedure repairs your knee after a tear of the anterior cruciate ligament (commonly called the ""ACL""). This ligament is in the center of the knee. It helps anchor the femur to the tibia. This surgery can allow you to regain normal knee function.
This outpatient procedure is used to repair a small area of damaged cartilage in the knee. The damaged tissue is removed, allowing healthy cartilage to grow in its place. It is performed through small incisions on the sides of the knee with the aid of a small video camera called an arthroscope.
Lateral Release and Medial Imbrication
This procedure is designed to loosen or tighten ligaments on either side of the patella (kneecap) to improve the movement of the patella in patients suffering from patellar tracking disorder. This procedure is usually performed arthroscopically through one or two small incisions near the patella.
Meniscus Repair (Arthroscopic Technique)
Each of your knee joints is cushioned by two c-shaped wedges of cartilage. The two cushions in each knee are called the ""menisci."" Individually, each cushion is called a ""meniscus."" Certain motions, such as twisting the knee, can cause a meniscus to tear. In many cases, a torn meniscus can be treated with arthroscopic surgery.
The meniscus is a cushion of cartilage. There are two in each knee. If one of these shock absorbers is worn out or hurt, you may need a partial meniscectomy to remove the damaged areas.
Revision Knee Surgery
This procedure replaces worn artificial knee parts and damaged bone with new metal and plastic components.
