Anatomy

Clinic for Orthopaedics and Accident Surgery: Knee Department

In addition to the hip joint, the knee joint is the largest joint of the human body with a complicated anatomy. It connects the thigh bone to the lower leg.

Anatomically, the thigh bone (femur), the shinbone (tibia) and the knee cap (patella) make up the structure of the knee joint. Here the healthy surface of the joint is covered by hyaline cartilage, which together with the two meniscuses absorb the loads like a buffer. More than with any other joint, cruciate ligaments and collateral ligaments are very important for the stability and function of the joint.
