Arthroscopic surgery

It is minimally invasive knee surgery with the use of a 4mm lens, fiber optics, a high-definition monitor, irrigation systems and various arthroscopic instruments that allow diagnosis and treatment of various injuries to this joint.

Advantage:

  • Minimal incisions.
  • Lower inflammatory response.
  • Less pain.
  • Reduces surgical and hospitalization time.
  • It allows a better visualization of the joint.

The following knee structures can be treated by this method:

Meniscus

They are fibrocartilaginous structures that cushion the forces transmitted to the knee. These can be injured horizontally, longitudinally, radially, obliquely, and in complex ways. They can be repaired (sutured) or reshaped.

Meniscus injuries can be traumatic or degenerative, the diagnosis is based on a detailed medical history and by imaging studies such as magnetic resonance imaging.

Its symptoms are pain, swelling, joint blockage (feeling that the knee is locking).

Knee dislocation

It consists of the patella coming out of its usual place, thereby preventing knee movements, and causing intense and disabling pain.

A patella dislocation can be traumatic or recurrent dislocation, the former being the most common.

Symptoms of patella luxation are severe pain, inability for any movement with the knee and increase in volume.

Wear (cartilage)

Joint wear and tear, also known as osteoarthritis, is a chronic disease characterized by the breakdown of cartilage in the joints. There are triggers such as major trauma and factors that accelerate the affected progression. There is also a genetic predisposition to suffer from the disease.

Symptoms: pain, joint stiffness, deformity, inflammation, functional disability.

Cruciate and collateral ligaments

Ligaments are elastic bands of tissue that join bones and provide stability to the joint. These ligaments tend to tear due to traumatic injuries and are more common in athletes.

The knee has 4 types of ligaments:

  • Anterior cruciate ligament.
  • Posterior cruciate ligament.
  • Medial collateral ligament.
  • Lateral collateral ligament.

Symptoms: pain, unsteadiness to walk (sag sensation when walking), inflammation (due to internal bleeding).

Torn ligaments sometimes do not heal with immobilization alone, as they do not receive a sufficient blood supply and may require surgery.

Ligamentos cruzados y colaterales

Los ligamentos son bandas elásticas de tejido que unen los huesos y proporcionan estabilidad a la articulación, dichos ligamentos suelen desgarrarse debido a lesiones traumáticas siendo más comunes en los deportistas.
La rodilla tiene cuatro tipos de ligamentos:
  • Ligamento cruzado anterior.
  • Ligamento cruzado posterior.
  • Ligamento colateral interno.
  • Ligamento colateral externo.

Síntomas: dolor, inestabilidad para la marcha (sensación de falseo al caminar) e inflamación (por hemorragia interna).
Los ligamentos desgarrados en ocasiones no se curan solo con inmovilizaciòn, ya que no reciben suficiente suministro de sangre y pueden ameritar una cirugía.
