Knee Arthroscopy:

Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure in which a small fibre-optic telescope (arthroscope) is inserted into a joint to visualise all the structures within that joint. Knee is the commonest joint undergoing arthroscopic procedures. The procedure is done using 2-3 small stab incisions and it is possible to treat most knee conditions using these small wounds. Due to the less invasive nature of these procedures, the recovery is generally faster

The common indications for knee arthroscopy are:

  • Knee ligament injuries
  • Cartilage injuries
  • Mal-tracking of patella and other patello-femoral disorders
  • Early osteoarthritis
  • Loose Bodies
  • Inflammatory and other uncommon conditions of the knee
