What Is Knee Arthroscopy? Quick Facts You Should Know

A knee arthroscopy is an innovative surgical treatment that uses a tiny camera called an arthroscope to diagnose and treat problems in the knee joint. Some of the most common knee arthroscopic procedures include:

  • Removal of inflamed synovial tissue or loose fragments of bone
  • Treatment of knee infections
  • Torn meniscus repair
  • Treatment of patella problems
  • Trimming of damaged articular cartilage

How is the surgery performed?

During this surgery, your knee specialist will make a few small incisions in your knee joint. A sterile solution will then be injected into the joint so that your doctor can have a clear view of all the structures in your knee.

What to expect: Your knee specialist will diagnose the problem and determine if surgical intervention is required. If so, tiny instruments will be inserted through the incisions to repair any damage.

How long will it take? Most arthroscopic knee surgeries last for less than one hour. Often patients will be able to return home the same day.
