• Knee Arthroscopy

    Knee Arthroscopy is a common surgical procedure performed using an arthroscope, a viewing instrument, to look into the knee joint to diagnose or treat a knee problem. It is a relatively safe procedure and a majority of the patient’s discharge from the hospital on the same day of surgery.

  • Arthroscopic ACL Reconstruction

    Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction is surgery to reconstruct the torn ligament of the knee with a tissue graft. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia. Your surgeon will make two small incisions around your knee. An arthroscope, small video camera, is inserted through one incision to see the inside of the knee joint.

  • Arthroscopic Treatment of
    Patella Instability

    Patellar (knee cap) instability results from one or more dislocations or partial dislocations (subluxations). Patella is the small piece of bone in front of the knee that slides up and down the femoral groove (groove in the femur bone) during bending and stretching movements.

  • Arthroscopic Cartilage &
    Meniscus Repair

    Meniscus is the C-shaped two pieces of cartilage located between thighbone and shin bone that act as shock absorbers and cushion the joints. Meniscal tear may be developed by people of all ages and is more common in individuals who play contact sports.
