Knee Anatomy

The knee is a complex joint composed of various parts – bones, tendons, ligaments and muscles. They all work together to keep the normal functions of the knee with stability during movement

The knee is a hinge joint composed of two bones, the femur (thighbone) and the shinbone (tibia). At the end of the femur, there are two round knobs called femoral condyles that articulate with the tibia’s flat surface, called the tibial plateau. The tibial plateau on the inside of the leg is called the medial tibial plateau and  on the outside of the leg the lateral tibial plateau.

Knee Arthroscopic Surgeries :

Arthroscopic ACL Reconstruction

The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is the main stabilizing ligament on the inside of the knee.  Tears/ruptures of the ligament result in knee instability.

Arthroscopic PCL Reconstruction

The posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) is the main stabilizing ligament on the inside of the knee. Tears/ruptures of the ligament result in knee instability. PCL tears are less common than ACL.

Arthroscopic Meniscus Repair

The meniscus is a C shaped thick cartilage pads that acts as a shock absorber between the femur (thigh bone) and tibia (shin bone). Each knee has two separate menisci

Arthroscopic Articular Cartilage Repair

Articular cartilage is a firm, rubbery material that covers the ends of bones in the knee joint. If damaged cartilage is not treated, it can worsen and eventually lead to severe knee arthritis 

Other Conditions Related to Knee

High Tibial Osteotomy

A high tibial osteotomy is a surgical procedure that realigns the knee joint by correcting the deformity in the proximal tibia in partial knee arthritis.
