Key Hole Surgery of the knee

Knee Arthroscopy means to look into the knee. Now with modern surgical techniques, much more can be done than simply looking into the knee. Knee Surgery has improved to allow many different problems of the knee to be fixed as a day case procedure. This allows for people to be able to walk immediately after the operation.

The patients of Chester, Cheshire, Wirral and North Wales, can have their knee problem treated and be home the same day. This is the advantage of being able to do the operation through small key holes. Even though major work needs to be done to the knee, the use of the minimal access portals means that the rehabilitation can be rapid.
