Knee orthopedic surgery ( sometimes called knee scope surgery) videos will show you what is entailed in a knee arthroscopy.
Sometimes not knowing is worse than the actual procedure. This can be the case with arthroscopic knee surgery. Basically it is method used to investigate and repair damage that is causing knee pain and limitation in movement using minimally invasive surgery techniques.
The first video, an animation, explains how the knee joint works and how the surgery is performed.
The second video is a real life case. It briefly shows the operation and covers what you can expect after the knee operation.
Arthroscopy is literally to view a joint. The use of arthroscopy allows an orthopedic surgeon to look inside a joint and see what needs to be done. Arthroscopy is very useful in the diagnosis and treatment of problems with the knees.
Recovery from knee arthroscopy is fairly quick, especially when compared with recovery from open knee surgery. Still, it is important to follow all of your orthopedic surgeons instructions for the fastest recovery possible.
With knee arthroscopy, an orthopedic surgeon can get an excellent view of the interior of a patients knee. This is done by use of a very tiny camera inserted through a very tiny incision.
