Knee Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure that allows doctors to view the knee joint without making a large incision (cut) through the skin and other soft tissues. Arthroscopy is used to diagnose and treat a wide range of knee problems, such as arthritis, meniscus tears, and ligament injuries. Knee Arthroscopies can help revert arthritis or injury damage and prevent the need for a knee replacement. Our orthopedic surgeons perform the most advanced Knee Arthroscopy procedures and enhance the results of the surgery by applying Platelet Rich Plasma before closing up, allowing patients to recover quicker and better.

Day 1: Arrival to destination of surgery – pre-op consultations and tests – spend night in hotel

The Knee Arthroscopy Procedure
During knee arthroscopy, your surgeon inserts a small camera, called an arthroscope, into your knee joint. The camera displays pictures on a video monitor, and your surgeon uses these images to guide miniature surgical instruments. Because the arthroscope and surgical instruments are thin, your surgeon can use very small incisions, rather than the larger incision needed for open surgery. This results in less pain for patients, less joint stiffness, and often shortens the time it takes to recover and return to favorite activities.
Your doctor may recommend knee arthroscopy if you have a painful condition that does not respond to nonsurgical treatment. Nonsurgical treatment includes rest, physical therapy, and medications or injections that can reduce inflammation. Knee arthroscopy may relieve painful symptoms of many problems that damage the cartilage surfaces and other soft tissues surrounding the joint, such as:
Torn Anterior Cruciate Ligament
Inflamed Synovial Tissue
Loose Fragments of Bone or Cartilage
Patella (kneecap) Arthritis
Knee Sepsis (infection)
Recovery from Knee Arthroscopy
Unless you have had a ligament reconstruction, you should be able to return to most physical activities after 6 to 8 weeks, or sometimes much sooner. Higher impact activities may need to be avoided for a longer time.
For some people, lifestyle changes are necessary to protect the joint. An example might be changing from high impact exercise (such as running) to lower impact activities (such as swimming or cycling). These are decisions you will make with the guidance of your surgeon.
