Knee arthroscopy is a minimally invasive outpatient surgical procedure that allows the doctor to view the knee joint without making a large incision.
Knee Arthritis Treatment
Rheumatoid arthritis is an inflammatory disease which attacks the joints. Inflammatory means that the patient presents with redness, warmth, swelling, and functional limitation in the joints leading to joint damage.
Viscosupplementation/ Gel Injections
Osteoarthritis develops slowly causing increased pain over time. Although there is no cure for osteoarthritis, there are many treatment options to help people manage pain and stay active.
The meniscus is a shock-absorbing structure in the knee, one on the inside (medial), and one on the outside (lateral).
If your meniscus is severely damaged or has been removed, it is likely that the articular cartilage protecting your knee will begin to wear. As this cartilage wears away, it becomes frayed and rough. Moving the bones along this exposed surface is painful.
Joint sparing procedures/ Cartilage Restoration
Damage to joint cartilage, or damage to both the cartilage and the underlying bone, does not repair itself spontaneously and results in joint pain and poor function.
This type of damage is common after trauma and if left untreated can lead to osteoarthritis.
Patella (knee cap) Fracture
This injury happens when there is a break in the patella. The patella is a large, movable bone at the front of the knee.
A femoral fracture is a break in the thigh bone, which is called the femur. The femur bone is also known as the thigh bone. It runs from the hip to the knee and is the longest and strongest bone in the body.
