What is Arthroscopic Knee Surgery?
Arthroscopic knee surgery is a surgical procedure that examines the internal structure of the joint using small viewing instrument called an arthroscope. The orthopedic knee specialist at FAITH Surgical Center inserts the arthroscope through small incisions in the skin to examine the knee joint. The arthroscope is connected to a high-resolution monitor. Surgical instruments are inserted into other incisions in the knee by the orthopedic knee surgeon to repair any damaged tissue. Arthroscopic knee surgery is very effective in treating several types of knee pain or knee injuries.
Benefits of Arthroscopic Knee Surgery
There are several benefits in using the arthroscopic knee surgery procedure. While traditional surgery may repair the knee, cutting open the knee along with the muscles is a much more invasive surgical technique. Traditional surgery may be necessary for some types of injuries, while arthroscopic knee surgery is preferred and recommended for many types of injuries that can be fixed using this minimally invasive technique. Some benefits of using the arthroscopic knee surgery technique are:
- Minimally invasive procedure
- Reliable to diagnose and correct knee injuries
- Faster recovery time
- Usually have full mobility soon after receiving procedure
