Knee arthroscopy is a minimally invasive technique that offers orthopedic surgeons the ability to access, navigate, and operate on the knee joint through very small incisions. TSAOG Orthopaedics & Spine is pleased to offer arthroscopic surgery for the knee.

What is Knee Arthroscopy?

Arthroscopic surgery of the knee (or knee scope) is a minimally invasive surgical technique which allows the surgeon to access, explore, and operate on the knee joint through very small incisions. The use of an arthroscope (a small instrument containing a lens and fiber optic lighting system) connected to a camera allows the surgeon to see a magnified and enhanced view of the interior of the joint on a television screen, often negating the need for a larger incision (open surgery).

What Knee Conditions Can Be Treated Arthroscopically?

Knee arthroscopy can be used to determine the cause of knee pain (diagnostic arthroscopy), but many knee conditions and injuries can also be treated arthroscopically, including:

  • Meniscus Tears / Meniscal Transplants
  • Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Tears
  • Loose Bodies in the Knee
  • Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) Tears
  • Bone Spurs
  • Knee Infections

Please note: arthroscopic surgery can also be used in combination with open surgery for some procedures.


Why Arthroscopy

Compared to open surgery (where the surgeon makes a larger incision to access the joint), arthroscopic surgery offers several benefits:

Reduced Pain
Reduce Cost
Faster Recovery
