Knee Arthroscopy

Many disorders of the knee can be treated successfully by arthroscopic surgery which is undertaken through two or more small incisions.  The arthroscope (6.5mm) tube with attached camera is inserted through one portal and small instruments are inserted through a second portal.  This allows complex operations to be undertaken within the knee. 

Due to the small incisions and high quality pain relief early rehabilitation is possible.  This surgery can be highly successful in treating many conditions.  The patients pain is minimised and the risk of complications are reduced.  This is associated with accelerated rehabilitation.
