How to be geared up for a knee arthroscopy?

The patient should be willing to share with the doctor about the medications and prescriptions that he is currently taking. Twelve hours before the surgery, he has to refrain from eating and drinking. Sometimes doctors prescribe pain medication to decrease post-operative discomfort.

How is knee arthroscopy carried out?

Anaesthesia (local, regional, general) is given to the patient. Certain incisions are made on the knee and salt water (sterile normal saline) is pumped into it so the knee can be expanded and enable the doctor to view the interior part of the joint too. Then, the arthroscope is introduced in any of the incisions and using the camera the doctor sees the inside of the joint. The images are seen on the monitor. Once diagnosis is made, the same incisions are used to treat the problem. Finally, the salt water is drained off and the cuts are closed. 

A physical exercise to be followed regularly, will be recommended by the doctor after a few appointments with him after the surgery. This would help to restore the strength of the muscles too.
