Anterior Cruciate Ligament injuries are very common sporting injuries. Understanding the dynamic nature of the interaction between muscle and joint control will help in recovery and prevention of re-rupture. With a logical approach and early diagnosis, regeneration may be possible without the need for surgery. If surgery is required, we offer the all inside tendon sparing ACL reconstruction to reduce surgical insult and enhance recovery.
The patellofemoral joint is highly complex, this is because the patellar tendon attached to the quadriceps muscle that spans across the hip and knee joint. It is a common cause of anterior knee pain. Dynamic assessments such as Knee Kinesiography is an excellent technique to help us diagnose the problem. Neuromuscular conditioning can be very useful in the treatment of anterior knee pain and kneecap issues.
The biomechanics of the knee is complex, there are eight degrees of freedom possible between the thigh bone (femur) and the shin bone (tibia), before taking the knee cap (patella) into account, there are 16 million possible combinations of deformity of the bone that can affect the knee and lower limb movement. We have the expertise and technology available to understand and correct these deformities.
In order to understand the functional outcome differences produced by various implant designs, it is critical to first examine the thought progressions that led to these designs. Many of today’s popular designs still adhere to outdated kinematic theories that require less conforming tibiofemoral articulation to produce rollback. The Golden Steps Knee System restores function by replicating the natural AP stability and medial-pivot motion of the knee.
