Her expertise and vast experience in the field has helped many patients who suffered from knee or hip joint related pain, to return to an active life
Arthroscopic knee surgeries are performed for various reasons, the most common being a complete or partial tear of the meniscus , found inside the knee
This important ligament connects the hip bone (femur) with the shin bone (tibia), balancing and stabilizing the bones. The ACL is located in the center of the knee and creates an X shape together with the Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL
The main reason for knee replacement is the pain suffered by the patient. A painful, non functioning knee can significantly decrease the ability to run a full, active life. Advancements in this type of surgery in the past 25 years made knee replacement surgery a very common and reasonable solution for damaged knees
Hip Arthroscopy is typically required in the following cases:
Free moving object/s occur in the hip joint cartilage.
In cases of labral tear which may rub against the cartilage (a tissue that is crucial for proper function of the hip joint, within the pelvis).
In cases of inflammation of the hip joint (synovitis).
The emergence of hip joint degeneration, commonly accompanies by the emergence of bone protuberances to the hip joint, which limit the hip’s movement.
The main reason for performing hip joint replacement is the pain suffered by a patient with a diseased hip. Hip deterioration does not only cause pain, but also prevents people from performing every day activities
Ankle Arthroscopy is typically required where free moving objects exist in the joint, in cases of damage to the cartilage of the lower ankle bone (OCD), or in cases of severe tissue clustering inside the ankle joint after injury or open surgery

The PCL, a thick major ligament in the knee, is located behind the ACL, and prevents the shin bone (tibia) from moving backwards against the hip bone (femur), as opposed to the Anterior Cruciate Ligament which prevents the forward movement of the tibia. The ACL and PCL are both responsible for the proper positioning of the bones which together make up the knee joint
