Being Managed by One of The Best for a Bicycle Knee Injury

Being Managed by One of The Best for a Bicycle Knee Injury

kneeOne of the worst orthopedic pathologies one can experience includes a bicycle knee injury. The reason for this is because not only are there three potential bones that can fracture, but numerous another anatomy such as ligaments, tendons, muscles, and soft tissue can be damaged as well. What makes a bicycle knee injury such a potentially problematic trauma is that due to the velocity that an affected individual falls at, this can result in high impact injuries that can involve lots of tissue loss.

Patients who experience severe injuries due to the trauma may end up receiving orthopedic and reconstructive surgeries for the bone and tissue damage sustained. Fractures may include those of the femur (upper leg), patella (knee cap), and/or the tibia and even then fibula (lower leg bones).

Ligament injuries may include those of the collateral ligaments that stabilize the sides of the knee, or the cruciate ligaments which are the support structures inside the knee. If these cruciate ligaments are torn then surgical interventions include either repairing the injured anatomy or replacement of these ligaments with either a donor ligament from the upper leg (graft) or with a synthetic graft if a donor ligament is not appropriate enough.

In order to have the best possible outcomes following such an injury, one will need to be managed by one of the best orthopedic surgeons who specialize in managing such injuries.
