The Biological Knee Society

The UK Biological Knee Society is an academic study group established by a group of specialist knee surgeons from the UK with a specific interest in the very latest and best possible surgical options and techniques for knee reconstruction.

There are many surgical options for reconstructing damaged knees. Missing meniscal cartilages can be replaced, either partially with artificial scaffolds or fully by meniscal allograft transplantation. Missing articular cartilage can be replaced by articular cartilage grafting. Unstable knees can be stabilised by ligament reconstruction. Malaligned knees can be straightened with osteotomies. All of these procedures have excellent published outcomes. When multiple of these procedures are combined simultaneously together, this is referred to as a ‘Biological Knee Reconstruction’.

The UK Biological Knee Society is dedicated to the study, evaluation and promotion of the very best surgical options for patients with damaged knees who are too young for artificial joint replacement surgery. This website is intended as a tool to raise the awareness of patients and surgeons alike and to disseminate the latest information on soft tissue reconstructive knee surgery.
