Arthroscopic Knee Surgery

The knee is the largest and hardest working joint in the human body and is very susceptible to injury. The 4l-year-old patient tore her anterior cruciate ligament, or ACL, during a tae kwon do lesson. Dr. Gary Poehling of the Bowman Gray School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, NC, replaces the ligament with an Achilles tendon obtained from a cadaver at a donor bank. The operation is performed under arthroscopic visualization, with a tiny camera inserted into the knee so that its interior can be displayed on a video monitor. The operation involves three incisions only a half-inch wide, which reduces both the risk of infection and the length of recovery time. Not available in French-speaking Canada. A Discovery Channel Production. (45 minutes)
