Arthroscopic Knee Surgery
Knee Arthroscopy is a ‘keyhole’ technique to treat problems inside the knee joint. Two small (5mm-8mm) incisions are made at the front of the knee. One ‘portal’ is to pass a state of the art high definition fibre optic camera and the other to pass instruments for the surgery. This technique can be used for cartilage, meniscus and ligament operations. The advantage of key hole is to minimise disruption to the tissues within the knee for less post-operative pain and to allow a quick recovery. Most arthroscopic surgeries are day cases allowing patients immediate walking and discharge home the same day as the operation.
