At the Knee Clinic establishing an accurate diagnosis is essential. The orthopaedic team treats chronic complaints as well as specific sports injuries to the knee. All complaints and defects of the knee receive state-of-the-art treatment.

From physiotherapy to keyhole surgery or performing a partial or total knee replacement. Operations to repair the cruciate ligaments are also performed in the outpatient clinic on a daily basis. Orthopedie Roeselare considers a quick recovery to be extremely important.

Possible diagnoses or causes of knee complaints are problems with the meniscus, cartilage or cruciate ligaments, a painful kneecap or osteoarthritis. Arrange a consultation or a procedure with one of our doctors.


Anatomy of the knee

The knee is the largest and one of the most complex joints in the human body. It is made up of cartilage, bone, two menisci, two cruciate ligaments, collateral ligaments, bursae, muscles, tendons and the kneecap. Each of the structures could individually be the cause of the pain, a functional defect or other complaint. The complexity of the knee joint makes it susceptible to acute injuries caused by running, jumping and other sports activities. Moreover, the forces that must be absorbed by the knee joint are substantial, which means strain injuries and wear and tear are very common.
