Meniscus Tear

Meniscus Tear is a common injury in which forceful twisting causes certain tissue in the knee to tear. A knee arthroscopy allows us to not only examine your knee, but to also repair the torn meniscus in a single procedure.

ACL Injury

An ACL injury is the tearing of the anterior cruciate ligament or ACL. When the injury is causing your knee to buckle, ACL reconstruction will be needed.

Knee Cap Dislocation

When your patella or knee cap slips out of its normal position, you have a patellar or a knee cap dislocation. There are two surgeries that can help you: tibial tubercle transfer or MPFL reconstruction.

Sore Knee Cap

Patellofemoral pain or knee cap pain involves pain in or around the knee cap. A lateral release surgery can correct the patellar misalignment. With this procedure, the ligament is cut and your knee cap is realigned to eliminate the pain.
