Sports knee injury

Increasing amounts of sport played by larger portions of the population within increasing frequency have led to significant amounts of sports injury to the knee.  Structures damaged during sporting pursuits include the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), the meniscal cartilages of the knee and other ligament and connective tissue structures around the knee and kneecap. Arthroscopic surgery using keyhole surgery techniques often as a day case procedure, is aimed at dealing with cartilage tears or reconstruction of injured ligaments. Newer techniques practiced by Professor Barrett in sports injury treatments of the knee allow minimal intervention and more rapid recovery to return to sports.
