Meniscus Surgery
The meniscus is a C-shaped piece of cartilage that acts as a cushion between the upper and lower leg bones in the knee joint. It aids in bearing the weight, turning, and gliding. Each knee has two menisci. A tear of the meniscus can be painful and interfere with proper movement of the knee. Depending on the extent of the tear, we can use arthroscopic surgery techniques to either remove the torn portion or repair the torn cartilage. Afterward, we can offer physical therapy to aid the healing process and restore proper use of the knee.

Meniscus Transplant
If the injured meniscus is extensively damaged, a patient may be a good candidate for a meniscus transplant. In this case, surgeons use arthroscopic surgery techniques to completely replace the damaged meniscus with cartilage taken from donor tissue.

ACL Reconstruction
When you twist your knee or fall on it, you can tear a stabilizing ligament that connects your thighbone to the shinbone. The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) unravels like a braided rope when it's torn and does not heal on its own. Fortunately, reconstruction surgery can help many sufferers recover full knee function after an ACL tear.

Often the doctor harvests strong, healthy ligament tissue from near your knee and uses it to replace the torn ACL. Donor tissue can also be used in some cases. In other cases where the ACL is torn cleanly from the bone, it can be successfully re-attached, rather than replaced.

Total Knee Replacement
In the case of severe arthritis or injury, a patient may require a total knee replacement.

During the procedure the bone and cartilage on the end of the thigh bone (femur) and top of the shinbone (tibia) are removed. A metal and plastic knee replacement implant is then placed to function as a new knee joint.

Uni/Partial Knee Replacement
Partial knee replacement is an option for patients who do not require total knee replacement because some of the joint is still healthy. In partial knee replacement surgery, the surgeon replaces only the diseased portion of the knee. Because only one side of the joint is replaced, doctors call these replacements unicompartmental, or "Uni" knees.
