Get Past the Pain
The most common knee ligament injury is an injury to the medial aspect of the knee. There are three main anatomic structures on the medial side of the knee, with the medial collateral ligament (MCL) being the largest and strongest. The medial collateral ligament (MCL) is a thin band that runs along the inside of the knee and connects the thighbone (femur) to the shinbone. Its primary function is to stabilize the knee as it moves.A large number of isolated MCL medial knee injuries are due to sporting events. They can be either a contact or non-contact stress to the outside of their knee, which in turn stretches or tears the medial knee structures on the inside of the knee. When a patient exhibits a Grade 3 tear, the surgeons at Kayal Orthopaedic Center can replace a torn MCL using minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery.
