Knee Arthroscopy

Arthroscopy is a type of keyhole surgery that can be used to investigate and treat knee issues such as damage to cartilage or ligaments, meniscus tears and osteoarthritis. During the procedure, which can be carried out under a local or general anaesthetic, a small incision is made to allow the arthroscope (a small surgical camera) to go inside the knee. This provides your surgeon with visibility into the body, allowing them to investigate the area and, where applicable, repair damaged tissues, remove loose fragments of bone or scar tissue, and take samples for further analysis. Arthroscopy can treat a range of common problems without the need for open surgery.
