Knee Arthroscopy

Knee arthroscopy is undertaken to confirm the diagnosis suggested by your symptoms and any radiographic investigations like x-ray, MRI or ultrasound, or to investigate for the symptoms when there is no apparent etiology.

Knee arthroscopy can either be done only as a diagnostic procedure or arthroscopic surgery can be done along with it if an operable defect is found.

During knee arthroscopy, an arthroscope (camera) is placed inside the joint through a small incision to visualise the structures inside the knee. If an operable defect is found, the surgeon will undertake an arthroscopic or keyhole surgery. A number of additional small incisions are made and precision instruments are inserted through them. A surgeon can then visualise the joint through the arthroscope on a monitor and carry out the operation.

Treatments Commonly Treated Arthroscopically:
  • Ligament repairs
  • Tendon repairs
  • Some meniscal surgery
  • Debridement (washing out the joint)

Arthroscopic procedures are very efficacious in that it involves very small incisions with minimal damage to the adjacent structures and can heal quickly. Sometimes, your Surgeon may opt for an open or mini-open procedure if it can be more beneficial to the patient.

You will need an initial consultation with a Consultant Knee Surgeon prior to surgery who will go through your medical history and explain the treatment plan. The consultation fee is £200. There are separate charges for any diagnostic tests you may require. The Consultant will explain what it includes and their charges.

In case you do not want to undergo surgery, you still need to pay the consultation fee along with the diagnostic tests if any. Our package price includes the expenses that patients need when going for this procedure.

In rare cases, you may need additional investigations or your hospital stay may be extended. In this situation, you will need to incur additional charges. You will be notified beforehand of any additional charges by our Admissions Team. Furthermore, you may be deemed unsuitable to undergo knee arthroscopy and in this case an alternative option will be suggested.
