Knee arthroscopy is a surgical procedure whereby a visualizing device known as the arthroscope is inserted inside the knee through a key hole incision. This can be a diagnostic as well as a theraputic procedure. Mostly this involves a diagnostic scopy followed by treatment of the underlying cause.
Arthroscopy has lead to a lesser morbidity and a faster recovery as compared to an open procedure with minimal risks of infection and other surgical complications. The usual theraputic procedures done include:
- Ligament reconstruction
- Cartiage surgery
- Meniscus Surgery
- Patello-femoral Joint evaluation
- Loose Body removal
- Diagnostic Arthroscopy
The procedure is usually done under a regional anaesthesia (Spinal/epidural) anaesthesia. The patient is usually mobilized on next day of surgery and discharged on the third day after comfortable ambulation.
