Arthroscopic knee surgery is used to treat knee conditions, including cartilage injuries, meniscus tears, and ligament problems. Because it uses several small incisions rather than a large one, people tend to return to their activities more quickly and with less pain. But that's not true for everyone.
Patients younger than 65 years undergoing total hip arthroplasty (THA) have 99 percent implant survivorship at eight years and have low rates of revision and readmission, according to a study presented at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, held from March 7 to 11 in Las Vegas.
For people of middle age or older with a tear in the meniscus, but without a history of acute knee trauma, surgery is rarely useful.
Knee hyperextension occurs when the knee joint bends backward beyond its normal range of motion. Depending on the severity, this injury can cause damage to the ligaments or tendons that support this area of your leg. It can also lead to pain and several other symptoms.
According to one study, iliotibial band syndrome is one of the most common injuries in runners presenting with lateral knee pain, with an incidence estimated between 5% and 14%
