Procedures to be covered will include mini-arthrotomy and traditional arthrotomy, partial and complete menisectomy, meniscal release, extra - articular stabilization, block and wedge trochleoplasty, tibial tubercle transposition, and capsulorrhaphy. In addition, as time permits, femoral head and neck osteotomy (FHO) has been added as a procedure for those with interest.
