Reasons For Knee Surgery
If you and your doctor have exhausted all conservative measures for treating your knee pain, you may be a candidate for arthroscopic surgery. Knee surgery is considered when all other conservative measures have failed. It's a positive measure to regain your active lifestyle, which knee damage has negatively affected over a period of weeks, months or even years.
Arthroscopic surgery can:
- Relieve pain
- Improve joint stability
- Repair tears and damage
- Improve quality of life
- Optimise activities of daily living
Each year, arthroscopic knee surgery is performed on millions of people worldwide. With recent advances in surgical technique and equipment design, patients have experienced relief of knee pain and improvement in knee function. Always speak to your doctor or surgeon to determine if arthroscopic surgery is right for you.
