Knee arthroscopy is a minimally invasive method of diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the knee joints. It involves introducing a camera into the knee by making small incisions and examining all elements of the knee joint. Arthroscopic tools are inserted through the second operative access to repair intra-articular damage.

Knee arthroscopy is most often performed after injuries of the knee joint:

  • damage to the meniscus
  • damage to the cruciate ligaments
  • osteochondral fractures
  • in the case of chronic knee ailments (numerous exudations of the knee joint, articular cartilage diseases, synovial diseases)
  • to treat the inflammation of the knee, to remove the bodies of the free knees

Patients are qualified for the procedure during consultation at the Orthopedic Clinic. Depending on the type of ailment, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound, x-rays (axial patellas, tunneling, overview, comparative) are performed. Our experienced doctors will conduct an individual interview and select the appropriate tests before performing knee arthroscopy.

For the procedure to be successful, the patient must strictly follow the orthopedic’s instructions. It is important to relieve the operated leg, even for several weeks. It means moving with elbow crutches. Therefore, it is worth starting learning to move with their help before the procedure.
During recovery, the patient should avoid strenuous exercise. However, this does not mean abandoning activity altogether. After arthroscopy, it is important to perform exercises under the supervision of a physiotherapist, the purpose of which is to strengthen and stretch the muscles, as well as improve the stabilization of the joint. Convalescence after the procedure may take up to 6 weeks. It takes around 12 weeks to fully recover, but it depends on individual factors.

Due to the low invasiveness, there are very few complications after the procedure. Postoperative scars are practically invisible. After pulling the stitches, the patient should undergo rehabilitation. After a few weeks of a frugal lifestyle, you can return to normal functioning and work.
