    Knee Surgeon in Mumbai

    The knee joint is a vital joint in the body that helps the legs to bend, straighten, and turn. The joint needs to carry the entire weight of a person’s body and is also the largest joint in the body.

    The knee joint is formed by joining the thighbone or femur to the top portion of the shinbone or tibia. These bones meet at the patella bone or kneecap. The bones are covered by cartilage, which helps the parts to move smoothly. A thick cartilage cushion, known as the meniscus, is present between the thighbone and shinbone. The knee joint is also made up of tendons that attach the bones to the leg muscles, and four ligaments that allow one bone to join to another bone.

    The knee joint may be affected by various types of medical conditions or injuries that may lead to symptoms like knee pain, swelling, and inability to walk properly or move the leg. A good knee surgeon can help in the diagnosis of the various conditions that can affect the knee joint and provide an appropriate treatment plan to relieve the symptoms of discomfort and improve the overall quality of life of a person.

    Dr. Aditya Sai, Consultant Orthopedic Surgeon at Shoulder and Knee Clinic, is the best knee surgeon in Mumbai. He has treated several knee conditions through successful medical and surgical interventions to date and he offers painless and comfortable knee treatments to all his patients.

    The Role of Knee Surgeons
