While there are other ways to investigate knee joint problems or injuries, an arthroscopy is the only way for us to get a direct view inside your joint.
We can often diagnose problems with an MRI scan, but we may still need to perform surgery to treat the problem.
During an arthroscopy, we look inside your knee using a small telescope with a light attached to a camera. This technique works with any joint in the body, although it is most commonly used with knees. Knee problems can happen at any age, and an arthroscopy is a safe and effective way to identify them and treat your knee.
Our knee pain symptom checker can help you understand what’s wrong with your knee. Our orthopaedic experts can diagnose and treat your knee in a hospital near you.
