People who have suffered knee injuries have many options. Although a full knee replacement may be the answer, The Stone Clinic believes that there are several other options that athletes should consider prior to undergoing surgery.

What's in the guide:

Find out how procedures to rebuild a knee naturally can help people return to sports and delay or avoid an artificial knee replacement:

  • Give your knee back its shock absorber by replacing the meniscus
  • Regain your knee's stability with ligament reconstruction 

Learn how we assess whether these treatments are right for you based on:

  • Your injury history
  • Your current symptoms
