Arthroscopic Knee Surgery in Clearwater

Minimally Invasive Knee Procedures

Knee arthroscopy, also known, as arthroscopic knee surgery, is a minimally invasive procedure where a small, tube-shaped camera with attached tools is inserted through small incisions to fix or diagnose painful problems within the knee. These include, but are not limited to, torn meniscus, articular cartilage tears, and ligament ruptures. Patients who have arthroscopic knee surgery often experience less downtime and quicker recovery time.

Benefits of arthroscopic procedures include:

  • Reduced bleeding
  • Less tissue damage
  • Faster recovery time
  • Fewer stitches
  • Less pain after the procedure
  • Reduced risk of infection

Not all knee procedures can be done using arthroscopic methods, and not all patients will be eligible candidates. However, for those that are, this minimally invasive approach to surgery is often the recommended option.

What to Expect During Knee Surgery Recovery

As mentioned, arthroscopic procedures result in faster recovery times for patients. You can leave the surgery center the same day of the operation so long as you have someone that can drive you home. However, you will still need to let the knee rest for several days before resuming normal activities. Some pain and swelling after the procedure are expected. You can use ice packs and over-the-counter pain medications to manage these symptoms. Keeping the leg elevated for several days can also help with recovery.

You may need crutches for a few days to avoid putting pressure on the need. We will provide instruction on how to use crutches so that you know how to use them properly.

Depending on the type of operation you had and the severity of your condition, recovery from knee arthroscopy can take anywhere between one to eight weeks.
