What is Knee Arthroscopy?

Knee arthroscopy, also known as keyhole surgery, is a minimally invasive procedure that allows a surgeon to examine and diagnose issues within the knee joint. It is commonly performed after a knee injury to assess and treat conditions like torn ligaments or meniscus injuries. In some cases, an MRI scan may be done prior to arthroscopy to aid in diagnosis.

Why have Knee Arthroscopy treatment?

There are several reasons why individuals may choose to undergo knee arthroscopy treatment:


Knee arthroscopy provides an accurate diagnosis of knee injuries, such as ligament tears or meniscus damage, enabling targeted treatment plans.


During arthroscopy, surgeons can repair torn meniscus or ligaments, helping restore knee function and alleviate pain.


Arthroscopy confirms the findings from previous diagnostic tests, such as an MRI scan, allowing for precise treatment of the identified problem.

What Happens at the Treatment?

The knee arthroscopy procedure typically involves the following steps:

General Anaesthesia

You will receive general anesthesia to ensure you are comfortable and pain-free during the procedure.

Surgical Procedure

The surgeon will make small incisions in the knee and insert a tiny camera (arthroscope) to visualize the joint. Specialized instruments are used to repair or remove damaged tissues as necessary.

Same-day Discharge

After the procedure, you can usually go home on the same day, allowing you to recover in the comfort of your own environment.

Knee Arthroscopy Recovery Time: Duration and Expectations

The recovery period after knee arthroscopy can vary depending on individual factors and the extent of the procedure. In general, most people can expect to resume their usual activities within 2 to 3 weeks. Rehabilitation, including physical therapy and exercises, may be recommended to strengthen the knee and restore mobility. Pain and discomfort following the procedure can be effectively managed with prescribed medications and self-care measures. It is important to attend regular follow-up appointments with your healthcare provider to ensure proper healing and monitor your progress.
