Patients in their own words ...

Loose body in the knee joint

It is important to remove loose bodies early to avoid cartilage damage.

What are loose bodies?

Loose bodies in the knee joint are small fragments of cartilage or bone that move freely around the knee in joint fluid, or synovium. They can hinder the joint moment by getting caught in flexion and extension movements. The loose bodies can vary in size from a few millimeters (such as the size of a small pill) to a few centimeters (the size of a quarter).  The fragments can lead to damage to the articular cartilage, causing osteoarthritis.

LCL injury

LCL/PLC reconstruction is important to avoid rotational instability of knee and subsequent cartilage damage. Depending on the extent of the damage, we are able to reattach the ligament with sutures or reconstruct it using donor tissue.
