The knee is the body's largest joint made up of the four primary components bones, cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. Because the knee is a complex joint with numerous components, it is susceptible to a wide range of injuries.
Fractures, dislocations, sprains, and ligament tears are among the most frequent knee injuries. In many cases, injuries to the knee involve more than one structure. In sports, often sudden meniscal tears occur. When twisting, cutting, rotating, or being tackled, tears in the meniscus can occur.
In Odisha, a 17-year-young, state-level Kho-Kho player named Santosh Murmu experienced a severe sports injury to the left knee during a tournament. The patient was brought to CARE Super Specialty Hospital, Bhubaneshwar. Dr Sandeep Singh, one of the top orthopedist in Bhubaneswar, handled this case.
Dr. Sandeep Singh recommended an MRI scan. An MRI showed a meniscus tear in the left knee. Further, Dr. Sandeep Singh performed a left lateral meniscus surgery on the patient. The patient was discharged with full power and control over his limb following comprehensive treatment and guided physiotherapy under Dr. Sandeep Singh's supervision.
