What you need to know about Knee Arthroscopy in Thailand

Knee Arthroscopy

Knee arthroscopy is a surgical procedure to diagnose and treat problems in the knee joint. It is a minimally invasive procedure mostly performed on people with persistent joint pain, stiffness, damaged cartilage, torn anterior or posterior cruciate ligaments, Knee cap that is out of position, fractured knee bones, and other problems around the knee.

What does the Procedure Involve?

Before knee arthroscopy, your doctor may give you a local, regional, or general anesthetic. Your surgeon will make a few small incisions in your knee and insert an arthroscope (a small instrument with a tiny camera attached to it). The tiny camera allows your surgeon to identify any problems and if the problem can be fixed with arthroscopy, your surgeon may insert a small surgical tool through the arthroscope to correct the issue. 

How Long Should I Stay in Thailand?

Knee arthroscopy may be performed as an outpatient procedure, meaning you may leave the hospital on the same day. However, you will be required to stay in Thailand for at least 7 days for follow-up hospital checkups with your surgeon where your progress will be monitored continuously.
