PROCEDURES

A surgical technique that can diagnose and treat problems in the knee joint.  During the procedure, a very small incision is made and a tiny camera is inserted into the knee to allow visibility the inside of the joint on a screen. Using these images your surgeon guides miniature surgical instruments.  Because the arthroscope surgical instruments, and incision are thin, this results in less pain for patients, less joint stiffness, and often shortens the time it takes to recover and return to favorite activities​

The Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) is a ligament located towards the inner knee that is crucial for proper movement. ACL injuries commonly cause knee instability that damages other ligaments. This injury is seen most commonly in athletes, and the injuries range from mild, such as small tears, to severe, where the ligament is completely torn.

The Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL) is a band of tissue, which is also found inside your knee. It connects your thighbone to the bone of your lower leg. The main job for the MCL is to keep the knee from bending inward. Injuries also vary from mild to severe, but are not as severe as an injury to the ACL.
