Knee Arthroscopy

Knee Arthroscopy or keyhole surgery is offered to patients who have localised damage within the knee. In the past it was used as a diagnostic procedure but with advances in MRI scanning this in now rarely needed. I perform the vast majority of knee arthroscopes to attend to specific areas of cartilage damage in the knee using various cartilage regeneration procedures. These encourage the body’s own stem cells to repair the damaged areas of the knee. I also regularly repair or partially remove torn cartilage (meniscus) that acts as a shock absorber between the tibia and femur to improve function and relieve pain. Patients undergoing knee arthroscopy usually go home two to three hours after the procedure.

I could not possibly let the moment pass without thanking you for the operation on my knee. Strange to say it was all quite an unforgettable experience in the nicest way. My thanks also to your splendid team. Mr M.S. June 2015

I just wanted to tell you how very grateful I am to you for carrying out the operation – and doing such a fantastic job! I know many people who have had similar operations but none can compare their results with mine! There is no pain now from my knee, and I have great movement and flexibility.  I will perfect the kneeling, it is too important to me to let it go.  My biggest benefit, I think, has been my general fitness and health.  Pain really wears you down and without it I feel several years younger!! So this card is just to say a really sincere “thankyou” to you and your very skilled staff.  With warmest good wishes to you.  I hope there will be many more patients who benefit from your wonderful skills! Yours very sincerely, Mrs C.W. August 2015
