At Highgate Hospital we offer advanced keyhole surgery techniques for the investigation and treatment of knee pain and joint injuries. Knee arthroscopy is a type of keyhole surgery, which uses a thin, flexible, telescopic instrument called an arthroscope to investigate – and sometimes treat – knee problems. The arthroscope has a light and a tiny video camera on the end, which sends images of the inside of your knee joint to a screen for your orthopaedic surgeon to view.
Injuries that can be treated using an arthroscopy include a torn meniscus, which is a fairly common injury (cartilage between bones in the knee). The majority of treatments using knee arthroscopy can be undertaken as a “day-case” and the patient can expect to be able to be back up and moving around, possibly with crutches, immediately after the procedure. The vast majority of patients should expect to return to their full daily activities within two to six weeks. With all procedures undertaken using the latest techniques in our state-of-the-art facilities, you’ll be in safe hands for the entirety of your stay.
What’s more, we offer an all-inclusive self-pay package, with prices for knee arthroscopy surgery (including meniscectomy, chondroplasty drilling or microfracture) starting from £3,720 (T&Cs apply).
