Knee Arthroscopy

Knee pain, instability, and stiffness can result from multiple problems, including ruptured ligaments, torn meniscus cartilage, loose bone fragments, joint surface damage, or other medical conditions, including arthritis, gout, and infection. There’s no need to live with pain. Doctors often perform knee arthroscopy to treat various causes of knee pain. People from Toronto, Ontario; Calgary, Alberta; Vancouver, British Columbia; Winnipeg, Manitoba; and across Canada who are seeking knee arthroscopy trust Surgical Solutions Network. We are a private healthcare network providing timely access to procedures such as knee arthroscopy.

Knee arthroscopy is designed to aid in the treatment of knee pain and injury. With the arthroscope, your surgeon can look directly into your knee, allowing them to make a more accurate assessment and decide on the best treatment option for you.

Reasons for Knee Arthroscopy

Knee arthroscopy may be recommended for the following knee problems:

  • A torn meniscus: cartilage that cushions the space between the bones in the knee
  • A damaged anterior cruciate or posterior cruciate ligament
  • An inflamed or damaged lining of the knee joint
  • Misalignment of the kneecap
  • Small pieces of broken cartilage in the knee joint
  • Treatment of Baker’s cyst: a fluid-filled swelling behind the knee
  • Certain fractures of the bones of the knee

What To Expect With Knee Arthroscopy

A knee arthroscopy typically requires general anesthesia, which means the patient is unconscious for the duration of the procedure. The procedure can take over an hour, depending on how much work the surgeon needs to do inside the knee joint. The surgeon makes small incisions in the knee area to allow them to insert the surgical instruments. Sterile fluid is pumped into your joint to help produce a clearer picture. Then the surgeon inserts a fibre-optic video camera, or arthroscope, which transmits the view inside the joint to a video monitor.

The surgeon will examine the knee joint and, if necessary, repair any damage or remove material that interferes with movement or causes pain in your knee. Afterward, the fluid is drained out, and the incisions are closed with stitches or adhesive strips. A dressing and a bandage are then wrapped around the knee.

The length of the recovery will depend on the severity of the injuries treated.
