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
Excellent experience. The doctor, staff, office services and hospital care were outstanding before, during and after the procedure. Thank you – Heathgrades, Dr. Cubbage review
Dr. David R. Mack replaced my right hip in June 2009, and my left in October 2010. I am already able to go places and do things on my own again.
I was treated by Dr. Brooks, about a month ago, for a terrible pain on my right knee. He treated me and within 2 days I was like new. Now the pain started on my left knee. This time I went immediately to Dr. Brooks.
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.
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
This office did everything they could to get me in timely after a very bad sprain on my ankle. I saw nurse practitioner Stuart who is very thorough and x-rays and explaining everything to me.
They are very professional and attentive. I was having shoulder pain. The wait was short and staff very kind.
I highly recommend Advanced Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine whenever the need arises for great orthopaedic surgeons.
Dr. Patel is a very good Pain Management Doctor. She is one of my favorite doctors.
I would highly recommend Dr. Cubbage if you are having any type of spinal issues. I have seen Dr. Cubbage several times over the last 3 years for lumbar pain and numbness in my left leg.
