Anatomical Landmarks of the Knee

Home/Anatomical Landmarks of the Knee

Defining surgical relevant anatomic landmarks can be particularly difficult at the time of surgery.

The following slides provide an outline of definable landmarks based upon our studies that have proven to be very useful to residents, fellows, and surgeons in surgery. The slides outline the primary anatomic landmarks for MCL surgery, posterolateral (PLC) knee surgery and PCL reconstructions.

As many of our colleagues have done, these slides can also be printed and laminated and taped to the walls in one’s surgery center to serve as landmarks for a safe and efficient surgery.
