Knee is a complex joint and comprises of two menisci, four ligaments s, cartilage and many more things, Injury to any of these structures leads to painful knee joint , pain swelling and difficulty in getting up from sitting position or climbing staircase are initial symptoms .few patients came with locking of knee joint ---inability to bend knee or make it straight from flexed position .

Arthroscopic procedures like meniscal repair , ACL reconstruction ,Loose body removal ,cartilage transplantation , mosaic plasty  are required in these situations . Most of the time when surgery is advised patients try to avoid it and that leads to further damage ;sometime irrecoverable .One day hospitalization and keyhole cosmetic surgery is what required to get back to your routine work .
