Arthroscopic Surgery to Address Meniscus Tears
The Board-Certified physicians at LKO expertly repair or trim meniscus tears during a brief outpatient procedure. The minimally invasive procedure usually is done through two small incisions and takes about 15 minutes. On average, patients are back to unlimited activity 6-8 weeks after arthroscopic surgery.
Knee Arthroscopy - ACL Surgical Repair
The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is the most frequently injured ligament in the knee. Almost all ACL repairs require a graft to fix the tear and make the ligament stronger. In young patients, we can use the patient’s own hamstring tissue. For those whose tissue can’t be used, our team uses the best tissue bank in the world for grafting substitutes.
At Lederman Kwartowitz Center for Orthopedics, we use the newest technology and the latest arthroscopic techniques to repair knee ligaments. The minimally invasive procedure usually takes less than one hour. The benefits of minimally invasive procedures are shorter operative time, less tissue trauma and pain, and faster recovery.
