Dear XXXXXXX Herman,

Thanks for your query.

By the end of this session, I hope that I have solved your queries.
Knee Surgery has developed as a super-specialty branch of Orthopaedics. A knee surgeon is an orthopedic surgeon who may have undergone specail training as a Knee Surgeon. Bangalore has many Knee Surgeons. The surgery of repair of Middle Cruciate Ligament can be done best by Arthroscopic knee repair.

Here the surgery is done by introduction of two probes the size of a ball pen from two opposite sides of the knee joint. Under the vision through the scope, the repair of Middle Cruciate Ligament is done by the surgeon. Sutures need not be taken on the two openings. After surgery two band-aids are normally stuck on the two openings.
The patient can get miraculous results with a minimal hospital stay.

In Bangalore one of the good arthroscopic knee surgeon is Dr. Chakravarty in Manipal hospital , Airport road.
Also Dr. XXXXXXX A Chandy in Hosmat hopital ( WWW.WWWW.WW

You may go to a big hospital with good infrastructure / equipments / well trained doctors like MANIPAL HOSPITAL or WOCKHARDT HOSPITAL.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any follow up queries I will be available to answer them.
