When rehabilitation doesnít work arthroscopic  Ligament reconstruction is the best and fastest way to get back to normal life. Ligaments can be reconstructed with small incisions and knee can be accurately restored to normalcy. 1-2 days of hospital stay and a quick rehabilitation can get you back to all your natural activities.

Realignment surgery

Those people who have a deformed or curved leg since birth or after injury should get their limb realigned so that it does not wear down and predispose to arthritis.
