Knee Arthroscopy

The knee has many potential pain generators, I use patient history, physical exam and advanced imaging studies but determine what is contributing to your pain.  These are a sample of common procedures performed in the knee to alleviate pain, instability and dysfunction:

 

  • Chondroplasty

  • Meniscal repair vs. partial meniscectomy

  • Knee ligament reconstruction

    • Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL)

    • Posteror Cruciate Ligament (PCL)

    • Medial/Lateral Collateral ligaments

    • Posterolateral Corner

  • Osteochondral auto/allograft transplantation

  • Autologous cartilage implantation

Benefits of arthroscopic over open knee surgery

  • Minimal scars

  • no overnight hospital stay

  • Decreased pain and swelling

  • Improved motion

  • Quicker functional recovery

  • Fewer risks and complications

Knee Arthroplasty/Replacement

  • Total knee arthroplasty (TKA)

  • Partial knee arthroplasty (PKA)

Some knee disease cannot be treated with arthroscopy alone and requires open surgery.  This is typical of advanced degenerative joint disease or arthritis.  There are various knee replacement options, the best option for you will depend on several factors including your age, activity level, and variations of your knee anatomy including if you have a functional ligaments and whether all compartments of your knee have cartilage loss.  Ask Dr. Kimball what options are best for your knee.
