Procedures

  • ACL Reconstruction

    ACL Reconstruction

    ACL reconstruction is a commonly performed surgical procedure. With recent advances in arthroscopic surgery, it can now be performed with minimal incision and low complication rates.

  • Cartilage Repair and Transplantation

    Cartilage Repair and Transplantation

    The articular surfaces of the body’s joints are lined by hyaline cartilage, a smooth tissue that serves as a shock absorber and allows easy movement of the bones within the joint. Normal wear-and-tear or injury can damage and cause defects in the cartilage, resulting in irregular articular surfaces that interfere with movement, causing pain, swelling and disability.

  • Knee Arthroscopy

    Knee Arthroscopy

    Knee Arthroscopy is a common surgical procedure performed using an arthroscope, a viewing instrument, to diagnose or treat a knee problem. It is a relatively safe procedure and most of the patients are discharged from the hospital on the same day of surgery.

  • Knee Fracture Surgery

    Knee Fracture Surgery

    A knee fracture is a broken bone or a crack in or around the joint of the knee. This can involve the tibia (shin bone), the kneecap (patella), or femur (thighbone) where they connect with the knee.

  • Viscosupplementation

    Viscosupplementation

    Viscosupplementation refers to the injection of a hyaluronan preparation into the joint. Hyaluronan is a natural substance present in the joint fluid that assists in lubrication. It allows smooth movement of the cartilage covered articulating surfaces of the joint.

  • Meniscal Surgery

    Meniscal Surgery

    A meniscus tear is the most common knee injury in athletes, especially those involved in contact sports. A sudden bend or twist in your knee can cause the meniscus to tear. This is a traumatic meniscal tear. Elderly people are more prone to degenerative meniscal tears as the cartilage wears out and weakens with age.

  • Cortisone Injection

    Cortisone Injection

    Cortisone is a corticosteroid released by the adrenal gland in response to stress and is a potent anti-inflammatory agent.

  • Gel-One

    Gel-One

    Gel-One is used to treat knee pain caused by osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis causes synovial fluid to lose its properties by the depletion of a component called hyaluronan.

  • ZILRETTA

    ZILRETTA

    Zilretta is a steroid medication with anti-inflammatory properties that may be injected into areas of the body such as the joints to relieve pain and swelling.

  • VISCO-3

    VISCO-3

    Visco-3 is a hyaluronan preparation that is injected intoa knee joint, in a procedure generally called viscosupplementation.

  • MCL Reconstruction

    MCL Reconstruction

    The procedure is performed under general anesthesia. Arthroscopic examination of the knee may be performed to rule out any associated injuries including anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and posterior cruciate ligament PCL) tears.

  • Multiligament Reconstruction of the Knee

    Multiligament Reconstruction of the Knee

    Multiligament knee reconstruction is a surgical procedure to repair or replace two or more damaged ligaments of the knee joint. The surgery can be performed using minimally invasive techniques.

  • Outpatient Total Knee Replacement

    Outpatient Total Knee Replacement

    Total knee replacement is the surgical treatment for knee arthritis, where the damaged knee is removed and replaced with an artificial knee implant. Traditionally performed as an inpatient procedure...

  • Unicompartmental Knee Replacement

    Unicompartmental Knee Replacement

    Unicompartmental knee replacement is a minimally invasive surgery in which only the damaged compartment of the knee is replaced with an implant. It is also called a partial knee replacement.

  • Patient Specific Knee Replacement

    Patient Specific Knee Replacement

    Patient Specific Knee Replacement is a newer technology in total knee replacement surgery. It is an advanced procedure using an individualized patient-specific knee implant for replacement of all three components of the knee. The difference with patient specific knee replacement from other knee replacement surgeries is the use of an MRI scan prior to the surgery that provides a clear view of the shape and structure of the different components of the joint.

  • Total Knee Replacement

    Total Knee Replacement

    Total knee replacement, also called total knee arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure in which the worn out or damaged surfaces of the knee joint are removed and replaced with artificial parts.
