Knee arthroscopy is key hole surgery performed through tiny incisions. A camera is inserted into the knee joint which provides the surgeon a clear view of the inside of the joint; any pathology can then be diagnosed and treated. This is mostly done as a day case procedure, allowing you to go home on the day of surgery itself.
High tibial osteotomy is a surgical procedure performed to relieve pressure on the damaged site of an arthritic knee joint. It is usually performed in arthritic conditions affecting only one side of your knee and the aim is to take pressure off the damaged area and shift it to the other side of your knee with healthy cartilage.
The medial patellofemoral ligament is a band of tissue that extends from the femoral medial epicondyle (inside of the thigh bone) to the superior aspect of the patella (knee cap). It helps stabilizes the patella and prevents the knee cap from dislocating.
