Knee arthroscopy

If conservative measures are insufficient, a joint-preserving operation known as arthroscopy can be carried out. This will slow the progression of the osteoarthritis considerably, but in most cases provides only temporary relief. Usually the pain of osteoarthritis returns faster than expected. In addition, many patients who have waited too long to get treatment due to their fear of surgery already have considerable functional impairment and malpositioning of the knee joint (bow legs or knock knees), so arthroscopy may no longer be possible. In many cases, relief of symptoms and restoration of mobility can only be achieved through artificial knee joint resurfacing.
