Knee Surgery

Modern Solutions for the Educated Patient

The knee is a complex joint with complex anatomy (Video). It is the most commonly injured joint in the body. Modern techniques in knee surgery require advanced training and specialized care.

Arthroscopy of the Knee
Arthroscopy of the Knee can be used for almost all problems in the knee.

The knee is the most commonly injured joint in the body. Sports injuries such as meniscus tears and anterior cruciate ligament tears 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 want the kind of sports medicine specialty care that can help them return to sport and to work as soon as possible. They also need to have solutions that will give them a knee that will last a lifetime.

Knee arthritis is increasing at epidemic rates. Between sports injuries, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis, over 600,000 knee replacements were done in 2010. That need is projected to be 3,000,000 annually by 2020. Arthroscopy for the arthritic knee, computer navigation, and minimally invasive total knee replacement, and minimally invasive partial knee replacement allow lower complication rates, improved function, and faster rehabilitation after knee surgery.
