Knee Arthroscopy in Chennai

With today's increasingly active society, knee pain is one of the most common musculoskeletal complaints trending now.  The main function of the knee is to bend and straighten according to the movement of the leg. It relies on a number of structures that constitutes the bones, tendons, ligaments and cartilage with the help of which it twists and rotates and also supports the entire body.
The beginning of the knee pain is through an inflammation caused by an injury which on its continuation can lead to progressive knee pain. This inflammation can be reduced with the use of medicines or other therapies in order to limit the damage caused to the tissue.


Any traumatic knee injury  that makes it impossible to walk should be checked immediately to avoid the possibility of a fracture or significant ligamentous or tendon injury. Some fractures are required to be made numb in a specific position or surgery which if avoided can hinder healing.
Knee arthroscopy Procedure
It is a surgical technique where the surgeon inserts a tiny camera into the knee through an incision made at the joint in which the examination and treatment of the damage is performed using an arthroscope . After arthroscopy your knee will have a support bandage that should be removed only after 48 hours.The surgical staples can be removed after seven to 10 days. It takes almost six weeks to fully recover from the surgery and to re-establish the joint fluids. There is a high degree of variability in recovery times sometimes depending upon the individuals primary health condition. A typical full recovery from a total knee replacement is three to twelve months.
For almost 80–90% of people who undergo total knee replacement, the new joint should last about 20 years and longer. If you've had a partial knee replacement, you're more likely to need a repeat operation. Only one in ten people need further surgery after 10 years.

At Chennai orthopedics, Dr. Bharani Kumar Dayanandam, along with his team of skilled physiotherapists and nurses handle all types of orthopaedic emergencies and complex cases. His distinct experience in knee and shoulder injury treatment is quite remarkable. He also specializes in trauma recovery, spinal injuries, reconstructive techniques, complicated joint replacements and delicate hand and foot injuries.

If you feel pain, swelling, stiffness, or unusual movement in your knee does not hesitate to consult the best surgeon who can diagnose and treat the injury before it is too late.
