The knee is a joint that unites the thigh with the rest of the leg and is a system of moving parts consisting of cartilage, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. The knee is also a hinge that provides our body with the strength to run, squat, jump, and turn. However, the knee is vulnerable to a number of injuries and conditions because of its inability to rotate in every direction.
At OrthoNorCal Orthopedic Specialists, our orthopedic knee surgeons have extensive education and training in performing specialized knee procedures. Common techniques our knee surgeons perform include total knee replacement, knee revision, total knee arthroplasty, partial knee arthroplasty, meniscal repair, ACL and PCL reconstruction, ligament repair and reconstruction, and cartilage repair and transplantation among many others. Please note that our knee surgeons are skilled in using the latest surgical methods, including minimally invasive techniques.
