Knee Arthroscopy

What is a Knee Arthroscopy?

Knee arthroscopy, also known as 'key hole surgery', is an operation which enables the surgeon to look inside the knee joint and perform surgery on it without making big cuts to expose the joint.

Knee arthroscopy is performed by making small cuts on either side of the knee through which a special camera is inserted into one side whilst specialised tools are inserted into the other side.

Knee arthroscopy can be used to treat a variety of knee problems and is one of the most common knee operations being performed.
