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.
