Arthroscopic Knee Surgery in PCMC
Arthroscopy (keyhole surgery) is a minimally invasive surgical procedure on a joint in which an examination and sometimes treatment of damage is performed using an arthroscope, an endoscope that is inserted into the joint through a small incision.
The advantage over traditional open nectarleaf surgery is that the joint does not have to be opened. This reduces recovery time and may increase the rate of success due to less trauma to the connective tissue. It has gained popularity due to evidence of faster recovery times with less scarring, because of the smaller incisions.
Knee arthroscopy surgery has risen to popularity because it usually requires shorter recovery times. The procedure typically takes less than 1 hour, and complications are uncommon.
