What is a Knee Arthroscopy?
Knee arthroscopy in Turkey is a minimally invasive surgical technique practiced to repair injuries that have occurred in the joints, by making two or three small cuts on the skin through which a camera is introduced to gain direct insight from the field of intervention.

Your surgeon can use knee arthroscopy to examine, repair, or remove any injured tissue.
How is an Arthroscopic Knee Surgery Done?
Knee Arthroscopy abroad can be performed under local anaesthesia, through which patients feel no discomfort or pain.
Arthroscopic knee surgery is a minimally invasive operation in which two half-centimetre small holes are made in the knee.

Instruments are inserted through the other hole to perform the surgery. Thus, the injured structures are seen and repaired with greater precision.
This part of a knee arthroscopy generally lasts from 30 minutes to just over an hour. How long it lasts depends on the findings and the treatment needed. You will be transferred to the recovery room and could go home in 1 to 2 hours after a knee arthroscopy in Turkey.

As in every other surgery, experiencing moderate pain and discomfort is quite common, not during the knee arthroscopy but after you have recovered from anaesthesia.
