Knee

The Healthy Knee

The knee joint is a complex, load bearing hinge that relies on surrounding muscles, ligaments, and connective tissues for proper function. Here is a brief overview of the properties of a healthy knee.

  • The human knee is composed of the end of the thigh bone (femur), the top of the shin bone (tibia), and the kneecap (patella).
  • These bones are held together by tendons and ligaments, and are separated by a shock-absorbing layer of smooth articular cartilage.
  • The cartilage makes up both the lateral and medial meniscuses, which allow the bones to glide and roll over each other with little resistance.

Problems of the Knee

Common problems experienced in the knee include:

  • Torn meniscal cartilage
  • Damaged anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) or posterior cruciate ligament (PCL)
  • Collateral ligament injuries
  • Swollen or inflamed synovial membrane, the lining of the joint
  • Small pieces of broken cartilage in the knee joint
  • Articular cartilage defects

Partial ACL/PCL and Meniscal Tear

Osteoarthritic cartilage damage can be treated with mesenchymal stem cell injections in conjunction with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections to decrease pain and increase mobility and function.

Tibial Plateau of the Knee

For patients suffering from decreased bone density in the tibial plateau of the knee, direct mesenchymal stem cell injections into the site can help increase bone density and decrease pain.
