Acute Knee Injuries

Most people experience minor knee problems at some point in their lives. And while our body movements generally do not cause problems, it’s not surprising that symptoms can develop from everyday wear and tear, overuse, or injury. Knee problems and injuries occur most often during sports or recreational activities, work-related tasks, or home projects.

Patient Info

Anterior Cruciate Ligament

ACL Reconstruction Hamstring Tendon
An anterior cruciate ligament, or ACL, injury is a tear in one of the knee ligaments that joins the upper leg bone with the lower leg bone. The ACL keeps the knee stable.

Knee Dislocation

Most people experience minor knee problems at some point in their lives. And while our body movements generally do not cause problems, it’s not surprising that symptoms can develop from everyday wear and tear, overuse, or injury. Knee problems and injuries occur most often during sports or recreational activities, work-related tasks, or home projects.

Patient Info

Medial Collateral Ligament

What is an MCL injury?
An MCL injury is a sprain or tear to the medial collateral ligament. The MCL is a band of tissue on the inside of your knee. It connects your thigh bone to the bone of your lower leg. The MCL keeps the knee from bending inward.

Patient Info

Meniscal Tear

What is a meniscus tear?
A meniscus tear is a common knee injury. The meniscus is a rubbery, C-shaped disc that cushions your knee. Each knee has two menisci (plural of meniscus)—one at the outer edge of the knee and one at the inner edge. The menisci keep your knee steady by balancing your weight across the knee. A torn meniscus can prevent your knee from working right.

Patient Info

Osteochondral Defects

Articular or hyaline cartilage is the tissue lining the surface of the two bones in the knee joint. Cartilage helps the bones move smoothly against each other and can withstand the weight of the body during activities such as running and jumping. Articular cartilage does not have a direct blood supply to it, so it has less capacity to repair itself. Once the cartilage is torn, it won’t heal easily and can lead to degeneration of the articular surface, which can in turn lead to development of osteoarthritis.

Patient Info

Patella (Kneecap) Dislocation

The kneecap, or patella, is normally positioned over the front of the knee joint at the base of the thigh bone (femur). A kneecap can be dislocated, or moved out of its normal position, when:

  • The inner edge of the kneecap is hit, pushing it toward the outer side of the leg. This can happen more easily if the kneecap is already slightly out of place (also known as patellar tracking disorder).
  • The foot is firmly planted pointing outward, and the knee is bent, with the thigh turned inward. This kind of injury is common during many sports activities.

Patient Info

Posterior Cruciate Ligament

The PCL is one of 4 major ligaments in the knee. It keeps the tibia (lower leg bone) from sliding posterior to the femur (thighbone).
