Arthroscopy- A minimally invasive surgical procedure
Arthroscopy is a minor surgical procedure performed on the knee where the joint is viewed with the help of a small camera. Thus, the doctors get a clear view of the knee with the help of a camera which allow them to diagnose and treat knee problems. Our trained doctors, nurses and surgeons at Cocoona make use of high definition cameras and monitors to address knee joint issues successfully. Used for performing arthroscopy in Dubai, our technologically advanced and highly effective equipment have made the treatment of knee problems quite easy and efficient.
Arthroscopy is done with the help of small incisions. During the surgical procedure, our orthopedic surgeons insert the arthroscope which is a small camera instrument in the knee joint. This helps to get a clear image on the monitor or screen. The knee structures are shown in detail on the monitor or screen which helps the surgeon to understand the problem with the knee. They repair and remove the damaged tissue in an easy way.
Methodology that our surgeons and doctors implement:
Before the surgery, the doctor will conduct complete physical examination with the patient. They will assess the health of the patient and identify issues that can interfere with the surgery. Before the surgery, the doctor will ask the patient if they are on any medication or supplements. If surgery is considered as required, the doctor may ask to stop some of these medications and begin a few as per the problem in the knee. They will take into consideration all the vital and sensitive points to ensure a successful surgery. Some preoperative tests, blood samples, etc. might be taken before the surgery is conducted. In some cases where surgery is not required or recommended, proper therapy and medication will be advised to the patient to enjoy a healthy life.
The treatment may last from 30 minutes to hours depending on the severity of the problem. The patient may go home within an hour or two. Sometimes, a day or two rest may be needed in hospital. Arthroscopy is performed in following cases:
