The knee joint contains multiple components that allow it to bend, straighten, twist and lift to walk, run and jump. When any component is damaged due to a knee injury or disease, surgery may be required to repair the joint. Knee arthroscopy offers a less invasive option to access the knee to repair components like a torn meniscus. At Robotic Hip and Knee Replacement LA, Dr. Farzin Kabaei, a top orthopedic surgeon, offers knee arthroscopy and meniscus surgery at our state-of-the-art medical center in Los Angeles.
What is Knee Arthroscopy?
An arthroscope is a medical tool that is designed to insert a tiny camera through a small incision to view the interior of the body. Knee arthroscopy uses small incisions to access the joint with an arthroscope and other small tools to help with diagnosing the issue and providing treatment. The small camera transmits images from inside the knee to a monitor. Dr. Kabaei can perform an exam of the knee joint and repairs without a large incision, reducing damage to the knee tissues.
There are many benefits of using knee arthroscopy for joint repairs and treatment. It is a minimally-invasive surgery, reducing pain and recovery time for the patient. The incisions and scars are less than an inch long, minimizing damage to the soft tissues around the knee.
Meniscus Repairs with Knee Arthroscopy
There are many knee repairs that can be performed through arthroscopy. One of the most common is meniscus repairs. The meniscus is the thicker cartilage that cushions and stabilizes the knee. Meniscus tears can occur from knee trauma or degenerative disease, causing pain and knee dysfunction. Dr. Kabaei uses knee arthroscopy to perform meniscus and other knee component repairs at our surgical center in Beverly Hills.
