The knee is the most complicated joint in the human body.

The knee is the largest joint in the human body and the most complicated in regard to its mechanics. It is exposed to high strain and is thus subject to certain degeneration in old age. The interaction between the ligaments and the menisci allows us to walk, run or squat and to rotate the knee slightly. 

 

The knee is the most complicated joint in the human body.

The exact diagnosis of a knee injury and the planning and execution of an optimal treatment require more than just standard medical knowledge. Individual physicians at OCM are specialized in the treatment of knee joints and their competence is reflected in their exemplary reputation in this field. Many top athletes, Olympic champions and world and European champions have entrusted themselves to them. 

One OCM treatment focus is arthroscopic surgery. This minimally invasive method allows joints to be operated on without having to open them. 

Almost all knee joint surgeries – with the exception of the implantation of an artificial joint - can be carried out arthroscopically. For example, reconstruction of the cruciate ligaments, partial removal or repair of torn meniscuses, repair measures on the cartilage and other surgeries can be carried out in this way.
