For patients struggling with chronic knee pain, Healthpointe’s team of advanced orthopedic surgeons is offering knee arthroscopic surgery. The surgery is minimally invasive by design, to reduce the risk of complications and side effects, and increase the chances of a faster recovery.
If you or someone you know suffered a knee injury from playing sports, or overuse of the knee, a knee arthroscopy may help alleviate symptoms. Many of the patients at Healthpointe choose to undergo the procedure due to a torn or injured ligament or meniscus, a swollen, inflamed, or damaged lining of the joint (also known as synovium), or fractures in the knee bone.
Dr. Stanley Katz, a member of the American Medical Association and the American College of Surgeons, and a specialist in sports medicine, is among the board-certified and fellowship-trained team of orthopedic surgeons at Healthpointe who diagnose and treat knee disorders. For many of their patients, the team of doctors often recommend a knee arthroscopy over a full-scale operation due to the arthroscopy’s minimal invasiveness.
A knee arthroscopy performed by Dr. Katz and his colleagues will usually entail a cuff-like device placed around the thigh to help control bleeding. The surgeon will make two or three small cuts around your knee, and then salt water will be pumped into your knee to stretch the bone. A narrow tube with a tiny camera will be inserted, enabling the surgeon to examine the are. The surgeon will then fix or remove the problem in your knee. At the end of your surgery, the saline will be drained from your knee. The surgeon will close your cuts with stitches and cover them with a dressing.
The unique design of an arthroscopy allows for minimal damage, and is focused to locate and treat the source of pain. For more information on Dr. Katz, and how a knee arthroscopy can help you, call (844) 887-7882 or visit Healthpointemd.net.
