Knee Arthroscopy


Arthroscopy of the knee joint is performed due to various ailments. It is a diagnostic and therapeutic treatment.

Indications for performing knee arthroscopy include: post-traumatic states, chronic pain, restriction of mobility, and knee joint blockage.

Arthroscopy is performed under subarachnoid anesthesia. There is no feeling of pain from the waist down. The surgeon performs point skin cuts through which a narrow tool which ends with a camera is inserted into the joint. At this stage of the procedure the operator finds the cause of the condition. Next, through the second point cut, tools can be used to repair the damage. At the end of the procedure, the surgeon rinses the inside of the joint from the blood and leaves the drain in the joint. The rehabilitation of the patient begins the day after surgery. In exceptional situations, it may be necessary to immobilize the limb in orthosis. The patient will learn about the details of the postoperative period after surgery.

The patient begins rehabilitation the next day after the procedure. Rehabilitation consists of individual exercises with the rehabilitant and his aid in the first upright standing, he teaches movement with the help of elbow crutches training as well as gives instructions on unassisted exercises. Additional support in the rehabilitation process is the use of CPM rails for continuous passive movement.
