Are you suffering from knee pain but unsure what your condition is? At Nuffield Health Brentwood Hospital our leading orthopaedic knee surgeons perform diagnostic knee arthroscopies to find the cause of your knee troubles and repair any cartilage damage.

Why choose Nuffield Health Brentwood Hospital for your knee arthroscopy?

At Nuffield Health Brentwood Hospital our leading orthopaedic knee consultants specialise in key-hole knee arthroscopy surgery, providing excellent diagnostic accuracy and cartilage repair for patients across Essex.

Without performing an investigative knee arthroscopy, many consultants will not be able to fully diagnose the severity of your knee condition prior to any further treatment, especially knee replacements. Our experienced team of orthopaedic surgeons have built an exceptional reputation in Essex for their professionalism, expert advice and successful patient outcomes.

If you are a little unsure about knee arthroscopy surgery and its benefits, you are more than welcome to attend one of our free orthopaedic open events at the hospital. Here you will get the opportunity to meet one of our surgeons, learn more about knee surgery and ask any questions you may have.

Recovery plus 

Our aftercare doesn't stop after you leave York Hospital, as knee arthroscopy patients are eligible for Nuffield Health's exclusive Recovery Plus Programme. Recovery Plus enables patients to continue with additional post-surgery rehabilitation at your local Nuffield Health Fitness & Wellbeing Gym.

How to book a consultation at Nuffield Health Brentwood Hospital

If you are interested or need a knee arthroscopy procedure, you can book an initial consultation with one of our experienced knee surgeons by calling our hospital enquiry team on 01277 695 695.

Please let the enquiry handler know if you have had any recent X-rays or scans when booking your consultation, as there will be additional charges for any diagnostic imaging required.

What happens during a knee arthroscopy?

  • Knee arthroscopy is usually performed under general anaesthetic
  • A knee arthroscopy operation normally takes between 1/2 an hour and 3/4 of an hour
  • Your surgeon in Brentwood will make 2 or 3 small incisions and then insert a tiny camera to examine the inside of your knee joint
  • Your surgeon will wash out any loose material caused by wear of the joint surfaces
  • It is usually possible for your surgeon to trim or repair a torn cartilage without needing to make a larger cut.

After your keyhole knee surgery

  • Once your operation is over, you’ll be taken to the recovery room where you will come around from the anaesthetic
  • Your wounds, blood pressure and pulse will be carefully monitored
  • Most patients are able to go home the same day as the operation
  • You won’t be able to drive, so you will need someone to come and take you home from the hospital once you have been discharged
  • Alternatively, ask reception to book a taxi.

How soon will I recover from knee arthroscopy?

  • Depending on the level of repair carried out the arthroscopy procedure generally, causes very little tissue damage
  • Most patients recover quickly
  • Your knee will be swollen and sore for the first week following your arthroscopy
  • Most patients return to normal activity levels within 2 - 3 weeks
  • Please discuss any concerns regarding your recovery with your knee surgeon.

Most people make a good recovery and return to normal activities following knee arthroscopy. However, as with any surgery, there can be complications:

  • Damage to the nerves around the knee
  • Developing a lump under the wounds
  • Severe pain, stiffness and loss of use of the knee.
