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
I have to give everyone 5 stars from the front office and staff to Dr. Blalock and Dr. Patel all were great with very professional service.
Completing forms online beforehand was quick and simple. I arrived 30 minutes prior to my appointment as requested, and was pleasantly surprised to be summonsed less than 10 minutes from arrival.
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.
For the first time in many years and many knee operations on one leg I am without any knee pain. This is a result of a procedure performed by Dr. Patel.
My son and husband have both been seen here. The staff is very polite and helpful. Dr. Mohr performed my husband’s back surgery.
Yes, I would certainly recommend Advanced Orthopedics & Sports Medicine to family & friends.
Dr. Mills is a great hand specialist. He gets right to the point and is very kind to offer exercises to do to get my full range of motion back.
I have been a patient of Dr. Cubbage for several years. Each time of go there, he always presents a thorough plan of care. From ordering the most appropriate diagnostic tests to making sure you understand
Doctor Brooks is the best. His advice to get lubricant injected into my knees has made my life so much better. Kudos!
