Knee Arthroscopy Procedures Performed in New Albany, IN
The board-certified orthopedic specialists at Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic in New Albany, Indiana, perform knee arthroscopy procedures. A premier provider of musculoskeletal care in the region since 1974, our independently owned practice should be your first choice for knee pain treatment and orthopedic surgery.
A knee arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgery that involves the use of an arthroscope – a thin, pencil-like instrument with a small camera affixed to the end. This surgery allows a physician to view the inside of the knee without making a large incision or disturbing the joint’s anatomy. During an arthroscopy, the arthroscope is inserted into the knee while live images from the instrument’s camera are displayed on a large screen in the operating room.
Knee arthroscopies are often used to diagnose joint conditions. When combined with other minimally invasive techniques, they may also be performed to:
- Repair torn cartilage or ligaments
- Remove loose bone fragments or cartilage
- Treat joint infections
- Address inflamed joint linings
- Remove excess scar tissue
