Arthroscopy, also called key-hole joint surgery is one of the latest and advanced treatment modalities to treat joint injuries. In this procedure, using fine telescopes, the inside of the joint is visualized and surgical procedures are carried out using specialized instruments. Arthroscopic procedures for treating knee ligament tears and meniscus tears are the gold standard of treatment,. In addition shoulder problems like dislocations, rotator cuff tears are treated arthroscopically. Arthroscopy has a significant role in the management of an injured sports person and allows the sports person to return to the previous level of activity.

FIVE REASONS FOR KNEE ATHROSCOPY

(KEY HOLE SURGERY)

  • A person who has had an injury of the knee in the past and complains of giving way or instability while running or playing or recurrent locking of the knee followed by swelling. It may be secondary to a tear of the shock absorber (meniscus), a loose body or a torn ligament (ACL).
  • A person with degenerative osteoarthritic changes of the knee with repeated locking episodes or increased pain and swelling in the knee despite all conservative means like physiotherapy and medication and is not a candidate for Total Knee Replacement.
  • A person who has sustained a fracture around and inside the knee joint may be fixed more effectively with help of arthroscopy rather than the traditional methods of opening the whole joint.
  • A person who has had unexplained knee pain and swelling with no history of trauma or injury can have a diagnostic Arthroscopy and a piece of the tissue can be sent for biopsy.
