Knee arthroscopy

General description
Arthroscopic orthopoedic surgery  involves inserting a small camera, into the knee joint through a small incision to look around the entire knee for problem areas. Usually, joint problems are a result of sport practice.

Knee surgery is performed in the following cases:  

  • A torn meniscus.
  • A damaged bone (la kneecap or patella).
  • A damaged ligament.
  • Inflamed or damaged lining of the joint (synovium).

Arthroscopy is also used to look inside the knee while ligaments and tendons are being repaired from outside.

Technical description
Procedure – Knee surgery is performed through small punctures in the joints while you are asleep and not feeling pain (under general anesthesia).

Generally, you can leave the hospital 24 hours after surgery. Recovery time and the need for physiotherapy are determined according the damage and the results of the procedure.

Hospitalization – Does not require de hospitalization.

Time – Arthroscopy lasts from 45 minutes to an hour



Total cost will vary according to individual needs.
