Knee

The knee joint is composed of three bones (femur, patella, tibia), four major ligaments (ACL, LCL, MCL, PCL), and two menisci. It is the most commonly injured joint in the body.

Sports injuries such as anterior cruciate ligament tears, meniscus tears and cartilage injuries commonly lead to surgery and are best managed in a specialized setting where advanced techniques can be chosen according to each patient’s specific needs. Athletes with acute knee injuries need sports medicine specialty care that can help them return to sports and work as soon as possible. Minimally invasive arthroscopic techniques can be used to treat most knee injuries.

Knee arthritis is increasing at epidemic rates. The most common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis, post-traumatic arthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis. Over 600,000 knee replacements were performed in 2010 and the need is projected to be 3,000,000 annually by 2020. Knee replacement is one of the most effective operations in all of orthopedics. Minimally invasive surgical techniques, computer navigation, and custom patient-specific instruments (Visionaire) are now available. They are leading to lower complication rates, improved function, and faster rehabilitation after knee replacement surgery.
