Knee Arthroscopy – A Diagnostic and Therapeutic Procedure Offered by Advanced Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine of Houston, TX
A knee arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that can be used to diagnose and treat certain knee injuries. At Advanced Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine of Houston, Texas, we offer arthroscopic knee surgery as an option for select cartilage injuries, ligament injuries and fractures, helping certain patients avoid the need for more invasive open procedures.
One major advantage of arthroscopic surgery is its limited impact on the soft tissues that surround the knee joint. Without having to manually move a patient’s knee cap, a surgeon can gain multiple views of a patient’s joint – both inside and out. Once the surgeon has determined what, specifically, is wrong with the patient’s knee, it is often possible to address the issue during the same procedure. For instance, during a knee arthroscopy, a surgeon can:
- Repair a tear in a patient’s ACL or MCL
- Reconstruct the ligaments that support the knee
- Place pins, screws or hardware to set a broken bone
- Remove damaged cartilage and smooth over the surfaces in an arthritic joint
At Advanced Orthopaedics, these procedures are performed by board-certified and double-board-certified surgeons who specialize in diagnosing and treating knee injuries via arthroscopy. As one of the most up-to-date orthopedic providers in the entire Houston area, we implement some of the latest surgical technologies and approaches, helping our patients achieve the best possible outcomes. Additionally, we provide comprehensive rehabilitative care after surgery, helping our patients regain their stability, flexibility and range of motion following a knee arthroscopy.

What Our Patients Are Saying
Dr. Cubbage & Staff replaced a disc that had been destroyed between my 4th and 5th vertebra. This is my 4th month since the surgery in January of 2018. I was very impressed with their dedication
Each procedure done by Dr. Patel has been an improvement. Very pleased.
Advanced Orthopedics & Sports Medicine has, at 76, virtually given me a new lease on being mobile and active. I have seen Dr’s Tanous, Patel, and Cubbage for an assortment of neck, spine and hip problems.
Advanced Orthopaedics is the absolute best PT I’ve ever gone through. The significance in my hip is just part of it.
Dr. Matthew Cubbage is absolutely the best Spinal Specialist in the area. After 2 successful surgeries by Dr. Cubbage myself, I have recommended him to Family & Friends and we have all had great experiences
My son and husband have both been seen here. The staff is very polite and helpful. Dr. Mohr performed my husband’s back surgery.
So I was going to get on here and brag about what a great surgeon Dr. Cubbage is. But Cubbage is only 3/4 of the picture. He’ll fix you, but Karen is the one that will care for you and heal you!
I’ve been going to this office to see Dr. Blalock 4 months. He has done 4 different hand surgeries some in February and 1 in April. I probably will need another surgery next year and Dr. Blalock will be my surgeon.
Dr. Ryan Blalock is AMAZING! He went above and beyond to fix my 8 year old son’s severely broken arm with emergency surgery.
I have been fighting chronic knee pain for ten years following a knee replacement, a bone infection, and subsequent knee revision surgery. After a number of failed solutions to pain relief, Dr. Patel introduced me to RF
