What is knee arthroscopy?
Knee arthroscopy is the surgical reconstruction or replacement of an arthritic joint. Knee replacements and hip replacements are the most common major orthopaedic procedures. The goals are to restore function and relieve pain.
Why do I need a knee arthroscopy?
If you suffer from pain, stiffness, swelling or instability in your knee, an arthroscopy may be recommended. Injuries within the knee are usually age-related, due to sports or accidents (falling over, for example).
How knee arthroscopy works
Knee arthroscopy (sometimes referred to as keyhole surgery) allows your surgeon to look inside your knee. They can then diagnose and treat with the required knee surgery.
