Multi Ligament Knee injuries
Our knees are complex joints with intricately interconnected systems of bones, cartilages, tendons, and ligaments. Ligaments are strong and sturdy bands of connective tissues that support the knee and keep everything in place. Multi ligament knee injuries hurt a lot and cause severe symptoms; it is important to get immediate medical treatment.

Causes of Multi Ligament Knee Injury
Multi Ligament knee injuries are caused by the following:

  • Car Accidents.
  • Sports Injury.
  • Fall from heights.
  • Direct trauma to the knee.
  • Work accidents.

 

In these accidents, two or more of the knee ligaments are injured or torn; if three or all four of the ligaments are injured, the knee becomes dislocated.

Multi Ligament Knee Injury Symptoms
These injuries are associated with severe pain and aggravated swelling of the knee. Below we have listed the symptoms:

  • Severe Pain in the knee.
  • Sudden swelling.
  • Tenderness to the touch.
  • Inability to walk.

Multi Ligament Knee Surgery
In multi-ligament knee injuries, surgery is required. Because of the complication and intricacy of the knee joint and depending upon the level of damage done, our orthopedic specialist will either perform open surgery or a closed minimally invasive surgery.

  • Surgery is required to construct ligaments. Grafting and stitching are used to repair the ligament.
  • In some cases, many grafts are required for the procedure to be successful.
  • In cases where damage is less arthroscopic, minimally invasive surgery may be used.
