Knee Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure for correction of internal derangements of the knee.
This procedure is performed by making a small ‘5 mm’ size cut on both sides of the knee joint. These portals are used to insert an arthro-scope with camera, and another is used for instruments to perform the required procedure.
It is usually performed under spinal anaesthesia. Common procedures/ indications for knee arthroscopy include,
Loose body removal,
Para-meniscal cysts excision,
Arthroscopic Laser Chondroplasty
The patient may start walking from the next day of surgery, and over 90 % of them resume office within a week. Active sport activities should be avoided for approximately 3 weeks.Leave a reply →
