Arthroscopic surgery (key hole surgery of the knee) involves a minimally invasive technique usually done as day case surgery and is conducive to a remarkably quick recovery.

Loose bodies, fragments and pieces if bone and cartilage floating in the knee can be removed and washed out. Rough surfaces causing Osteoarthritis and inflammation can be made smoother. As the incision in the knee is so small, scarring is minimal and trauma is reduced, giving a consequent reduction in pain and postoperative complication.

Arthroscopic cartilage and meniscus repair removes roughness, friction and “wear and tear” in the cartilage.
