Orthopedic Arthroscopic meniscus repair is an outpatient surgical procedure to look and perform some procedures inside the knee by using a thin telescope. The torn meniscus is a special cartilage inside the knee that fills up in the space between the thigh bone and the leg bone. Arthroscope a minimally invasive technique can be applied to fix meniscus tear and to trim irreparable part of the meniscus which may cause pain or catching inside the knee.

How is it done?

During the procedure the surgeon will cut in the skin and into a joint. The Healing potential can be improved by stimulating healing reaction, either by inducing bleeding or fibrin clot. There are special suture materials which will be used depending on the character of the tear. The Arthroscopic meniscus procedure lasts about one hour under general anesthesia. Post procedure, the patient may have to limit their activity to some degrees but this will be kept negligible using strong and reliable suture material that allows early knee function.

Why is it done?

The meniscus is indispensable. In case of one lost meniscus, it creates an unfavorable condition for nearby cartilage. Generally the knee starts to degenerate, especially if there is associated ligament damage. The meniscus treatment is, therefore, not just a pain relieving procedure but also a preventive measure for arthritis. The most commonly occurring ligament injury in meniscus injury is anterior cruciate ligament injury and may have to be addressed as well. If not taken proper care the instability situation may cause repeated meniscus injury and result in failure of meniscus treatment.

Risks & complications

There are some complications that can occur during or following arthroscopy. This includes:

  • Accidental injuries to structures inside or near the joint
  • loss of blood inside the joint, which can cause swelling and pain
  • Infection within the joint
  • there may be a risks and complications associated with anesthesia, including respiratory and cardiac malfunction
Alternative

There are several alternatives which the surgeon might opt for depending on the condition of injury. For example in cases of ‘conservative treatment’ where the potential for healing is already high without need for arthroscopic procedure.
