Why choose Nuffield Health Leeds Hospital for my knee arthroscopy?

As Yorkshire's largest private hospital, we pride ourselves on providing the highest standards of treatment and patient care. Located in the heart of Leeds, our modern hospital offers state-of-the-art treatment facilities in a clean and safe environment.

Patients always receive a personal service at our Leeds hospital and you will see the same knee specialist throughout your arthroscopy treatment. Our friendly nurses will make sure you're comfortable and well looked after during your stay. If you're worried about your knee, we can diagnose you quickly and determine the cause of the problem.

Your surgeon can diagnose problems such as a torn cartilage, ligament damage and arthritis. To aid a full and speedy recovery, we also provide qualified on-site physiotherapists.

What happens during 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 Leeds 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 operation

  • 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, book our executive car service.

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 recovery 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.
