Knee problems are the most common reason patients visit orthopedic surgeons.
As the largest joint in the body and one made up of many components, the knee is complex and particularly susceptible to various types of injury. Essentially comprised of four bones, the knee is surrounded by muscles that allow for movement, ligaments that provide stability, and a cartilage structure that protects the joint and allows the bones to slide freely against each other. From torn cartilage to ACL tears, the knee is frequently injured by "weekend warriors" and professional athletes alike. Osteoarthritis, fractures, and "wear and tear" injuries also cause many patients to seek treatment for pain and degeneration of the knee joint.
