ACL reconstruction is when a piece of tissue from a tendon is used to replace a torn tendon
Partial meniscectomy is where the damaged part of the meniscus is removed during arthroscopic surgery.
Arthroscopy allows surgeons to use a type of keyhole surgery to diagnose and treat joint problems.
The knee joint consists of the lower end of the thigh bone (femur) and the top of the shin bone (tibia). At the front of the knee is the knee cap, also known as the patella. The patella moves up and down in a groove on the front of the femur as the knee bends and straightens.
