KNEE ARTHROSCOPY (KEY HOLE)

Patient Information

Knee arthroscopy, also known as key hole knee surgery, is a surgical procedure whereby small incisions are made over the front of the knee and a small camera is used to look around the inside of the knee joint. Different surgical instruments can be introduced to perform surgery on the inside of the knee. Common procedures that are performed during knee arthroscopy include repair of cartilage and osteochondral defects, repair of meniscal tears, excision of meniscal tears (menisectomy), removal of loose bodies and ligament reconstructions.

Mr Craik offers private knee arthroscopic surgery at Ashtead Hospital in Surrey. The procedure is usually performed as a day case whereby you will go home on the same day after your surgery.
