The medial collateral (tibial collateral) ligament is a broad, flat band of tissue that connects the medial condyle of the femur (thighbone) to the medial condyle of the tibia at the knee joint. It helps with resisting force from the knee’s outer surface, preventing side-to-side displacement of the knee in the inner direction.
