What's new in Knee Surgery
Minimally Invasive Knee Surgery
Knee injuries are common in sports activities, accidental falls and in motor vehicle accidents. During knee injuries, any one ligament of the knee may get injured and can be treated by various surgeries. However in some cases multiple ligaments may get injured. A knee with multiple ligaments damaged requires special care. A multi-ligament knee will often require serial surgeries for repair of certain structures and then reconstruction of other ligaments. Dr David C Flanigan is well-experienced and performs surgeries for multi-ligament tears.
He is also experienced in performing minimally invasive surgery, a procedure that has many advantages than the traditional open surgery. Patients experience minimal pain and discomfort, requires minimal hospital stay and shorter recovery period so that patients can restore to their normal function quicker
