WHAT IS ACL / PCL LIGAMNENT INJURIES ?
Knee joint is stabilized by Cruciate (ACL/PCL) and Collateral (MCL/LCL) ligaments. ACL tear is the most common injury. This ligament injury results in frequent episode of instability or giving way sensation. Mild to moderate injuries can be treated with medicine and proper physiotherapy. Complete ligament tear needs Arthroscopic stabilization surgery.
WHAT IS MENICUS INJURIES ?
There are two meniscus (Medical & Lateral) in knee joint. They function as shock absorbers and load shearing devise. Any injury, fall or accident can cause meniscus tear resulting in pain and locking episode of knee joint. Key hole surgery (Arthroscopy) is necessary in such cases.
