As one of the leading private hospitals in Leicestershire we pride ourselves on delivering a first class patient experience in our modern, recently refurbishment facility.

Our expert consultant orthopaedic surgeons are highly experienced and specialise in knee surgery. The same consultant will be with you every step of the way throughout your knee arthroscopy journey.

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 your 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 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.

How soon will I recover from my 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 patients make a good recovery and return to normal activities after their 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.
