Arthroscopy of the knee joint is a modern examination and therapy procedure which allows the physician to view and assess the entire interior of the joint using a camera in order to enable precise clarification of existing joint complaints.
This procedure can be used to treat numerous diseases of the knee joint.
Nowadays, it is possible to perform all types of meniscus surgery.
Cartilage damage can be treated and free joint bodies can be removed. Postoperative scarring adhesions and as well as inflamed mucosal folds can be removed.
More complex operations such as anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction as well as many regenerative cartilage therapies are nowadays performed completely arthroscopically or arthroscopically assisted by our experienced specialists.
Our specialists will be happy to explain the possible therapies to you.
The complication rate for arthroscopic surgery is very low. There may be slight irritation effusions in the joint, which can usually be quickly resolved with appropriate treatment and medication. The feared complication of joint inflammation (infection) is negligible compared to the conventional surgical method. We currently survey more than 15,000 independently performed arthroscopies and arthroscopic operations and have rarely experienced complications during this time.
It is fair to say that a new era of joint surgery has dawned since the introduction of transarthroscopic joint surgery. This is reflected in the founding of numerous scientific associations that deal specifically with this fascinating method. We ourselves are members of the German-speaking Working Group for Arthroscopic Surgery and have been appointed by this German-Austrian-Swiss association to train other physicians in arthroscopic surgery.
