Knee Anatomy

The knee - formed where the bottom of the thigh bone (femur) meets the top of the shin bone (tibia) - is arguably the body's largest and most complex weight-bearing joint. When the knee is healthy, the joint moves freely. This is because the joint is covered with white elastic materials called cartilage and powered by large muscles.
