KNEE INJURIES

Most people who experience knee injuries by way of rupturing or tearing a ligament can usually remember the exact situation that caused the injury and can recall the immediate sensation felt during the time the knee injury took place. Because the knee is so immensely vulnerable to injury, clinics and hospitals such as ours see an overwhelming amount of cases each year.

Why is the knee such a common area for injury?

It is widely stated that the knee "carries the most weight." The knee is more prone to injury because the entire weight of the body is transferred through the knee to the foot. The knee contains bones, tendons, cartilage, ligaments and nerves that all lie under the kneecap (also knows as the patella).

Once Dr. Parikh and his team has consulted with you and determined that knee surgery is needed in order to repair your damaged or injured knee, he will then thoroughly discuss the various treatment options and the surgical procedure he believes is best suited for your specific condition or injury. Most importantly, you, the patient, will share in the decision-making process. Dr. Parikh specializes in a variety of minimally-invasive and open-surgery processes to the knee including procedures to the anterior cruciate ligament (the ACL), the articular cartilage, and the meniscus. He and his team will discuss in detail the rationale for each surgery and the details of the surgery before and after the procedure and then will prescribe the appropriate rehabilitation plan that must occur for a proper, quick, and healthy recovery.
