Arthroscopic knee surgery

Arthroscopic knee surgery is suitable for most minor procedures such as a torn meniscus (cartilage) or removing loose fragments and for ligament reconstruction surgery. It is usually not indicated once significant arthritis has developed.

You can start walking immediately after surgery and get back to work and sport soon after surgery.

Recovery is rapid but results depend on the pre-op state of the knee such as if early arthritis is a factor.

Review within 2 weeks allows discussion of what was found and what was required at surgery.

The bandages and dressings can be removed within 24 hours of the surgery and you can shower (but not bath) after 48 hours.
