Knee Surgery Overview

We offer our patients several knee surgery options:

  • Arthroscopic Chondroplasty
    This outpatient procedure is used to repair a small area of damaged cartilage in the knee. The damaged tissue is removed, allowing healthy cartilage to grow in its place. It is performed through small incisions on the sides of the knee with the aid of a small video camera called an arthroscope.Find Out More
  • Mini Incision Total Knee Replacement
    Mini-incision Total Knee Arthroplasty, also called MIS TKA, replaces the damaged and painful areas of the knee joint with metal and polyethylene plastic parts. The MIS total knee procedure is performed through an incision that is smaller than the incision used for traditional total knee replacement surgery. This technique reduces blood loss and pain and allows for a shorter recovery.Find Out More
  • Partial Meniscectomy
    This minimally-invasive outpatient procedure is designed to remove the damaged portion of the meniscus, a layer of cartilage on top of the tibia that cushions and stabilizes the knee joint. The procedure may be performed with local or regional anesthetic.Find Out More
