A knee arthroscopy can help investigate and treat your knee problems.
Many different knee conditions and injuries to the knee can be treated during this type of operation, including:
There is a broad scope of knee pain symptoms you might experience that could mean you need to have knee arthroscopy surgery at The Alexandra Hospital in Manchester. These include:
Your knee arthroscopy recovery time depends on a variety of factors, including:
You should be resting at home 48 hours after surgery. At this stage in your recovery, you will be able to remove any dressing from your knee. Your Consultant will explain when you can bathe or shower after surgery.
Swelling after knee arthroscopy is common. If you experience this, as well as any residual pain, you can take over-the-counter medication, or try heat therapy in the form of an ice pack or heat pack to relieve your symptoms. If your knee still hurts after arthroscopy surgery, do not be alarmed. If pain persists, speak with your Consultant. They will be able to advise on the best course of action for this situation
Around two to three weeks after surgery, you should be able to enjoy low-impact exercise, such as swimming, cycling or walking. It is important to try these to continue to strengthen the muscles around your knee(s) and improve your mobility.
You should avoid impact exercise for at least six weeks.
* After arthroscopic surgery, you can usually return home on the same day as your procedure (known as a day case procedure). Your doctor may recommend you stay overnight if they deem it necessary based on your circumstances, but this is unlikely
