Knee Arthroscopy

Minimally-Invasive Knee Surgeon in Hermitage, TN

Understanding the Knee Arthroscopy Procedure

Knee arthroscopy is a cutting-edge surgical procedure that offers an effective and minimally invasive solution for a range of knee conditions. This advanced technique involves the use of a small camera, known as an arthroscope, which allows the surgeon to visualize and treat various knee problems through tiny incisions.

Conditions commonly treated through knee arthroscopy include:

  • Meniscal tears: Arthroscopy can repair or remove damaged or torn meniscus, the cartilage that cushions the knee joint.
  • ACL injuries: The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is a crucial stabilizing ligament in the knee. Arthroscopic surgery can reconstruct this ligament if it is torn or damaged.
  • Patella injuries: Instability or dislocation of the kneecap, as well as chondromalacia patella (kneecap softening), can be treated through knee arthroscopy.

With knee arthroscopy, patients benefit from smaller incisions, reduced scarring, faster recovery times, and minimal disruption to the surrounding tissues. 

Dr. Malcom Baxter at Pinnacle Surgical Orthopedics has extensive experience in performing knee arthroscopy procedures, ensuring each patient receives optimal care and tailored treatment for their specific condition.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of minimally invasive knee arthroscopy treatment?

Minimally invasive knee arthroscopy treatment offers several benefits. It involves smaller incisions, resulting in less tissue damage and reduced scarring. The recovery time is typically shorter compared to traditional open surgery. Additionally, patients often experience less pain and have a lower risk of complications. Overall, minimally invasive knee arthroscopy can provide improved outcomes and a quicker return to normal activities.

When is it time to consider arthroplasty & knee replacement?

It is typically time to consider arthroplasty and knee replacement when the pain and limited mobility in the knee significantly affect daily activities and conservative treatments are no longer effective.
