What is Arthroscopy?

Arthroscopy comes from the Greek word Artho & Scopien which literally means to look into the joint. Arthroscopy is a procedure by which various joints in the body (Knee, Shoulder, Ankle, Hip & Wrist) can be inspected and treatment is given by a small pencil-shaped instrument called arthroscopy surgery (Telescope). Although it is a significant surgery, it involves minimal invasion.

This is a keyhole incision surgery where two single stitch incisions (Pic.1). are usually enough to treat any problem which would have normally required a large incision ( Pic.2). This has been made possible by technological advancement in the Bio-engineering field. The Arthroscopy procedure also allows the surgeon to treat various underlying minor issues of the joints by inserting ultra-thin surgical instruments through the same incision.

Arthroscopy helps to diagnose and treat significant conditions which would else require open surgery.

Why is Arthroscopy Required?

Doctors choose Arthroscopy as it is much more advanced and helps when other noninvasive procedures such as X-rays, and other imaging techniques fail to diagnose the root cause of the issue. Arthroscopy is also suggested when other non-surgical treatments such as medications, physical therapy, or injections fail to mitigate the discomfort and pain

Some conditions include:

  • Tear in the ligaments
  • Internal scarring in the joints
  • Inflammation in the joints
  • Tear or damage in the cartilage
  • Loose bone fragments

 

Arthroscopic Knee Surgery

The knee joint is supported by four ligaments which are demanded its stability. These ligaments are ACL & PCL which are centrally placed and MCL, LCL which are peripherally placed. ACL is the most generally injured ligament of the knee joint. This injury is commonly seen in youthful active individuals either during sports or road accidents. The patient constantly complains of insecurity, and pain in the affected knee, and is unfit to pursue sports or sometimes even activities of daily living.

If you have any problem related to tears of the meniscus and knee ligament that are hampering your daily activity, it is recommended to undergo a Knee Arthroscopy

What is recovery like after a Knee Arthroscopy?

This surgery isn’t very invasive. For most people, the procedure takes lower than an hour depending on the specific system. You’ll probably go home on the same day for recovery. You should use an ice pack on your knee and a dressing. The ice will help reduce swelling and minimize your pain.

It will probably need about 6 weeks of recovery time. If your repair damaged tissue, recovery will take longer. Your doctor will give you an exercising authority to follow at home to help your knee recover or recommend a physical therapist to see until you’re suitable to use your knee typically. The exercises are necessary to help restore your full range of stir and to strengthen your muscles. With the proper care, your outlook after having this procedure is excellent.

Mr. Hari Lal-Both knee Replacement

ऑपरेशन से पहले मैं हर काम के लिए बच्चो के सहारे के मोहताज था। Tiolet के लिए भी मुझे बच्चो का सहारा लेना पड़ता था तथा दर्द के कारण  मुझे रात भर नींद नहीं आती थी। Knee Replacement के बाद मैं अपनी सभी दिनचर्या के काम बिना दर्द के बड़ी आसानी से कर लेता हूँ मेरी यह सलाह हैं कि जिस किसी को भी इस ऑपरेशन कि जरुरत है वह इसे अवश्य कराए।  मुझे तो इससे एक तरह से नई जिंदगी मिली हैं।

My overall experience with the Hospital was excellent. I wish him all the best for the future.

मैं घुटनों के दर्द से हताश होकर संत परमानन्द हॉस्पिटल में आया था, डॉ शेखर श्रीवास्तव ने मेरे दोनों घुटनों का एक साथ इलाज करके मेरी जिन्दगी के 15-20 साल वापिस लौटा दिए। उनकी दूरदर्शिता, हिम्मत और विश्वाश को देख के मुझे बहुत अच्छा लगा।
