Knee Joint Reconstruction

This refers to the “rebuilding” of the knee’s architecture. A knee joint reconstruction is typically performed when the damage isn’t severe enough to necessitate a full replacement, but is severe enough that surgical intervention is needed to regain full or partial function.

Arthroscopic Repair of the Knee

During an arthroscopic procedure, a tiny camera is inserted into the knee to detect underlying issues and guide the surgeon through the procedure. As stated by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, arthroscopic repairs can be used to treat ligament tears, meniscus tears, patella issues, and more.

Total Knee Replacement

As stated by the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, approximately 7 million Americans are living mobile lives with total joint replacements. Total knee replacement is typically performed as a last resort when there is no chance of repair. If your surgeon prescribes a total knee replacement, artificial implants will be inserted into the knee to allow for less restrictive, less painful movement.

Ligament Reconstruction

Much like knee joint reconstruction, ligament reconstruction is typically performed when a patient’s ligaments are torn or damaged enough to require surgical intervention to “rebuild” the knee’s foundation and regain function.
