How is a knee dislocation treated?
The first and most critical step in the management of a knee dislocation is getting it back into place. The longer the knee is dislocated, the greater risk of injury to the joint and the surrounding neuro-vascular structures.
After this first, urgent and necessary step, an expert evaluation is needed to determine timing and details of surgery.
For patients in Vail, Aspen and the surrounding Denver, Colorado communities, knee dislocation surgery is best done by a surgeon who perform this specialized surgery regularly and repeatedly. Dr. Vidal is well versed in treating knee dislocations and their varied injury patterns. He also has a large and varied supply of allograft ligaments for reconstruction, and a surgical team which is very talented at The Steadman Clinic.
