Knee Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure Orthopaedic surgeons use to visualise, diagnose and treat problems inside the joint. The word arthroscopy comes from two Greek words; Arthro – joint & Scope – to look. The term literally means to look within the joint.
Strong bands of fibrous tissue called ligaments help stabilise the knee joint and align the bones that meet at the knee. There are 2 main sets of ligaments in the knee joint: the ‘Collateral Ligaments’, which run along either side of your knee joint, and the ‘Cruciate Ligaments’; Anterior Cruciate ligament (ACL) and Posterior Cruciate ligament (PCL) which sit inside your knee joint.
