In recent years there have been many advances and developments in all orthopaedic disciplines and knee surgery is no exception. These advances and developments in knee surgery have been due to our better understanding, and in turn better management of arthroses, fractures, and ligamentous injuries of the knee. These have been coupled with advances in our understanding of biomechanics as well as joint and ligament reconstruction, and arthroscopic surgery. Aspects of these important developments will be included in this session.
