Do You Need a Knee Arthroscopy?

Developments in the Treatment of Degenerative Knee Arthritis & Meniscal Tears For many years knee arthroscopy has been used for patients with persistent knee pain, instability due to a torn meniscus, debridement (removal of loose bodies within the knee) and for diagnostic purposes. It was considered a good option as it was keyhole surgery, thus reducing the risk of infection and speeding up post-operative recovery. Previously arthroscopy was an open procedure, involving a larger incision and an elongated recovery period. However, recent clinical trials have studied patient recovery times and outcomes when treating degenerative meniscus tears with arthroscopy versus a combination of physiotherapy and exercise (Brignardello-Peterson, Guyatt BMJ 2017 – see link below for more details).

The patient will also be offered a personalised, graduated exercise programme to strengthen the muscles supporting the knee joint. With compliance to the treatment and the home... read more
