THE KNEE

The knee joint is involved in all types of movement, and is therefore the basis for our mobility. Due to its unique architecture, the knee is the most complex joint in the body. Modern techniques make it possible to anatomically reconstruct the unique function of this hinge joint, particularly after sports injuries.
