  • Surgery approach

    Knee arthroscopy is designed to diagnose and treat various knee conditions, including progression of joint wear, or arthritis. This minimally invasive approach offers several benefits over traditional surgery, such as reduced postoperative pain, shorter hospital stays, and quicker recovery times.

    The surgery involves making 2-3 small incisions, or ‘portals,’ through which an arthroscope and surgical instruments are inserted to treat specific lesions. A camera on the arthroscope allows the surgeon to assess the knee joint and decide the most suitable treatment.

    The range of treatments varies from synovectomy for inflamed tissue and microfractures for cartilage repair, to more complex cartilage grafting using either autografts or allografts. Loose bone or cartilage fragments are precisely removed, and conditions like Patellofemoral syndrome, commonly known as runner’s knee, are addressed.

    After the surgery, your incisions will be carefully sutured and dressed. You’ll then be moved to the recovery room to awaken from anaesthesia. Our goal is not just to alleviate your pain but to significantly enhance your quality of life through comprehensive care.

  • What´s included

    Online Meeting: Before your surgeon consultation, you’ll meet with our Patient Experience Manager to address question and to request your medical history, needed to ensure that both the surgeon and their team can thoroughly assess your case.

    Online Consultation: After a thorough review of your case, you’ll discuss surgical options, benefits, and risks during your initial consultation with your surgeon. Upon mutual agreement on the treatment, our Patient Experience Manager will outline contracts and payment details.

    Preoperative Preparation: Surgeon’s team will guide you through preoperative steps, including educational courses, tailored physiotherapy exercises, follow-up meetings and advice on preparing your home environment for post-surgery recovery.

    Surgical Procedure: You’ll complete pre-admission tests before your arthroscopy. Once cleared, you’ll have the surgery and briefly recover in the Post-Anaesthesia Care Unit. The minimally invasive nature of the procedure allows for quick evaluations, enabling you to go home the same or next day.

    Rehab and Follow-Up: Post-discharge, you’ll attend scheduled rehab appointments and a follow-up visit for stitch removal. Online sessions with the surgeon and physiotherapist will be available to ensure smooth ongoing recovery.

FAQ's

How long does it take to recover from knee arthroscopy?

Full recovery after knee arthroscopy varies for every individual, and it significantly depends on the severity of the knee condition and overall health. For simple procedures, patients might find themselves able to return to desk work and light activities within a week. More extensive procedures might necessitate several weeks to a few months of rehabilitation, including physical therapy, before complete recovery and return to strenuous activities or sports.

Why do you need a knee arthroscopy?

Knee arthroscopy is performed to diagnose and treat conditions that cause knee pain and reduce mobility. Conditions such as meniscal tears, loose cartilage, or bone fragments, inflamed synovial tissue, and patellofemoral syndrome can be effectively addressed through this minimally invasive procedure.

How to prepare for knee arthroscopy?

Before surgery, have a thorough discussion with your doctor about any medications you’re taking. Typically, you’ll need to fast for several hours beforehand. Arrange for someone to take you home post-surgery, as you may be under the effects of anaesthesia.

What should I avoid after knee arthroscopy?

It’s crucial to rest and avoid strenuous activities that could strain your knee post-arthroscopy. Adhere to the rehabilitation plan recommended by your surgeon, gradually introducing light activities and physiotherapy exercises. You’ll also need to keep the incision site clean to avoid infections.

Is a knee arthroscopy painful?

While you shouldn’t feel pain during the procedure due to anaesthesia, you might experience mild to moderate discomfort post-surgery. Your medical team will provide pain relief medication to manage this effectively, ensuring your recovery is as comfortable as possible.

How risky is knee arthroscopy?

Knee arthroscopy is generally a safe procedure, but, like all surgeries, it carries potential risks such as infection, excessive bleeding, blood clots, or potential damage to the knee structures. Your surgeon will discuss these risks with you in detail before the operation.

What is the most common complication of knee arthroscopy?

Infections, though uncommon, are a potential complication following knee arthroscopy. It’s essential to monitor your recovery and promptly report any signs of infection, including persistent pain, swelling, redness, or fever, to your healthcare provider.

What happens if knee arthroscopy doesn't work?

If your symptoms persist after knee arthroscopy, further consultation with your surgeon is needed. They may suggest additional treatments like physiotherapy, medication adjustments, or, in rare cases, another surgical intervention.

What is the success rate of knee arthroscopy?

The success rate for knee arthroscopy is generally high. Many patients report a significant reduction in pain and improved knee function post-procedure. However, the outcome can vary based on the specific knee condition being treated and the patient’s overall health status.

How long does an arthroscopy operation take?

The time taken for a knee arthroscopy procedure depends on the nature and complexity of the problem. However, it typically ranges from 30 minutes to over an hour. Your surgeon will provide a more precise estimate based on your situation.
