A meniscus arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that is typically performed to repair or remove a damaged meniscus in the knee joint. The meniscus is a C-shaped piece of cartilage that acts as a shock absorber and helps to stabilize the knee joint. Meniscus tears are a common injury, especially among athletes and people who engage in physical activities that involve sudden movements or twisting of the knee.
During a meniscus arthroscopy in Turkey, a small camera called an arthroscope is inserted through a small incision in the knee joint. The arthroscope allows the surgeon to see inside the knee and assess the extent of the meniscus damage. Once the extent of the damage is determined, the surgeon may choose to either repair the meniscus or remove the damaged portion.
Meniscus arthroscopy in Turkey is typically performed on an outpatient basis, which means that patients can return home the same day as the surgery. Recovery time varies depending on the extent of the meniscus damage and the type of procedure performed, but most patients can expect to return to normal activities within a few weeks.
