Peripheral ligaments of the knee are often damaged either singly, or in combination with other ligaments during knee injuries. The Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL), or the Postero Lateral Corner (PLC) are commonly involved. If treated early, it is possible to repair the ligaments by stitching the torn ends together. However, in neglected cases and badly damaged ligaments, it is necessary to reconstruct using grafts with open surgery.

Knee Pain from meniscus (shock absorber) tears is usually the result of a twisting injury. When the menisci are weakened due to aging, they may tear even with trivial events such as a false step while walking. Complaints are pain or clicking in the knee. The knee may sometimes lock and it becomes impossible to bend or straighten it. Treatment is by arthroscopy (keyhole surgery). In most cases, the torn meniscus is removed. This can be performed under local or spinal anesthesia

multi ligament reconstruction : Multiple ligaments of the knee are damaged in cases of knee dislocation. The ACL, PCL, MCL, and PLC are the four main ligamentous structures which form a framework to stabilise the knee. Of these, three or even all four structures can be damaged during a knee dislocation, apart from possible damage to blood vessels and nerves. Such injuries present unique challenges for ligament reconstruction.

arthroscopic arthrolysis - Stiffness or restricted movements in the knee can occur after injury, after surgery, or due to arthritis or congenital conditions. If the stiffness is because of scarring inside the joint, then the tough scar tissue is removed through arthroscopic surgery.

Shoulder replacement is a surgical procedure in which damaged surfaces of the shoulder joint are replaced with artificial metal and plastic components.

The Knee-cap (Patella) can dislocate during an injury, particularly in children and adolescents. In 50% of cases, it then starts to dislocate repeatedly without any injury, a condition called as “Recurrent Dislocation of Patella”.

The use of platelet rich plasma (PRP), a portion of the patient’s own blood having a high platelet concentration, to promote healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints, can be applied to various musculoskeletal problems.
