The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is one of the main supporting ligaments of the knee. The ACL’s main role is to keep the knee stable during rotational movements, for example, twisting, turning or side- stepping activities. It also provides important information to the muscles around the knee, which are involved in protecting the knee during activities.
The main indication of ACL reconstruction surgery is symptomatic instability following ACL injury. The aim of ACL reconstruction surgery is to restore the functional stability of the knee without compromising other joint functions.
High tibial osteotomy is a surgical procedure to realign the leg and reduce the pain you have from your knee by transferring the body weight to the preserved normal outer side of the knee.
A knee arthroscopy is a procedure that involves making two or three small incisions, or portals, usually in front of the knee. A small arthroscope (three to five millimetres in diameter) is inserted into the knee allowing the surgeon to see and operate inside the joint. Knee arthroscopy is usually carried out under a general anaesthesia, either as a day case or in some instances as an overnight stay in hospital.
Primary indication: lateral patellar instability. The aim of MPFL reconstruction surgery is to restore the functional stability of the knee without compromising other joint functions.

Possible complications of Surgery:
There are many conditions which require a knee replacement. The most common is osteoarthritis. This means that the cartilage of the knee has worn out, resulting in the top of the shinbone (tibia) and the bottom of the thigh bone (femur) rubbing together. This is very painful and stops you from being able to move your knee as you once did.
