Knee Injuries
The meniscus is a C shaped disc of soft tissue that sits between the bones of the knee. It is often referred to as the cartilage and acts predominantly as a shock absorber between the two bones. Each knee has a medial or inner meniscus or a lateral or outer meniscus.

Knee Procedures
The anterior cruciate ligament is a large ligament in the knee. The anterior cruciate ligament lies in the centre of the knee and acts to stabilise the knee, particularly during rotation, pivoting, twisting and side stepping movements.
