Knee Arthroscopy in Argentina

Knee Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure orthopedic surgeons use to diagnose and treat problems inside the knee. A small incision is made in the skin and then a pencil-sized instrument, called arthroscope, is inserted to provide us a clear view of the knee interior.

The arthroscope has fiber optics that transmit the image of the joint interior to a tiny camera, connected to a TV monitor. The image of the joint on the screen will allow the surgeon to examine in detail the interior of the joint and determine, in most of the cases, the cause of the problem. Likewise, during this procedure the surgeon will be able to insert, through one or more small incisions, other instruments inside the joint, allowing the surgeon to treat the pathology. Consequently, arthroscopy is a procedure that, besides the diagnosis, allows the treatment.

Knee Arthroscopy is recommended for the following knee problems:

  • Meniscal tears or torn meniscus

  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury

  • Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injury

  • Osteochondritis

  • Osteochondral fractures

  • Tibial spine avulsions

  • Synovitis

  • Intra-articular fractures
