What is Knee Arthroscopy?

Knee arthroscopic surgery is the recommended treatment option for people having certain types of knee pain. A small camera is inserted inside the knee joint. Through other tiny incisions, miniature instruments are inserted to repair or remove damaged structures.

Things you need to know 

  • Knee arthroscopy is performed under the influence of anaesthesia.
  • The procedure takes about 30 mins to one hour.
  • You will be required to stay in the hospital for about one day to two days, followed by a few more days of rest
  • Your average length of stay will be around three days to a week.

How to prepare for the treatment?

  • Your healthcare provider will discuss the entire procedure with you.
  • The doctor will analyze your complete medical history by performing a complete physical exam, blood tests, or other diagnostic tests.
  • If you are allergic or sensitive to any medicines such as iodine, latex, tape, or anaesthetic agents, tell the healthcare provider.
  • You will have to fast eight to twelve hours before the surgery.
  • Also, tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines, supplements that you may be taking.
  • Avoid smoking
  • You will have to arrange for someone to take you back home.

Procedure involved

  • Before your knee arthroscopy, the surgeon will give you an anesthetic. This may be:
  1. local (numbs your knee only)
  2. regional (numbs you from the waist down)
  3. general (puts you completely to sleep)
  • A small incision or cut will be made by the surgeon in your knee.
  • Using sterile saltwater, the knee will be expanded.
  • The surgeon will insert the arthroscope through one of the cuts and look around in your joint using the attached camera.
  • The camera images can be seen on the monitor in the operating room.
  • After locating the problem, small tools are inserted to correct the issue.
  • The surgeon will drain the saline from your joint after the surgery and sew your cuts with stitches.

What to expect after the treatment?

  • As the surgery isn’t very invasive; thus, you can go home on the same day for recovery.
  • The doctor may advise you to use an ice pack on your knee and a dressing to reduce swelling and minimize your pain.
  • Keep your leg elevated and put ice on it for a day or two to lessen swelling and pain.
  • You can also change your dressing. A surgeon will instruct you when to do these things and for how long.
  • The doctor will provide you an exercise regimen to follow at home to help your knee recover.
  • The physical therapist will help you in restoring your full range of motion and strengthening your muscles.

Potential risks that you need to know about:
Some of the risks associated with knee arthroscopy are:

  • excessive bleeding during the operation
  • infection at the location of the surgery
  • breathing troubles caused by anesthesia
  • allergic reaction to anesthesia
