The tibial plateau is the flattened upper surface of the tibial bone (shinbone), where it makes contact with the rounded ends (condyles) of the femur (thighbone).
Seated on the top of the tibial plateau are the wedge-shaped menisci, and in the middle of the tibial plateau is the tibial spine, to which is attached the anterior cruciate ligament.
(Plural of plateau is plateaux.)
