Knee arthroscopy – Krakow – How does the procedure in our surgery proceed?
During the knee arthroscopy procedure, small pinpoint incisions are made on the sides of the joint, then a micro camera is inserted and the space is filled with saline. The orthopedic surgeon, by viewing and describing the various structures, makes a diagnosis of damage, the existence of foreign bodies or other changes. Depending on the needs, the doctor can immediately apply the appropriate treatment procedure, performing the procedure with miniature surgical instruments. The procedure is characterised by the absence of blood, and thanks to small incisions patient’s discomfort is related only to the treatment. A very important advantage of arthroscopy is the short stay of the patient in the clinic and the reduction of postoperative complications.
