Knee surgery is undertaken by an Orthopaedic Surgeon. Knee surgery includes knee replacement surgery (arthroplasty), to remove part or all of a damaged or diseased knee joint. In general, the surgery consists of replacing the joint surfaces with artificial joints, made of metal, ceramic or plastic materials. This may be done with open surgery under general or local anaesthetic. Knee arthroscopy is common and less invasive. It involves small incisions being made on the knee through which is inserted a flexible instrument with a camera attached (arthroscope). This allows examination of the joint, diagnosis of problems and, in some cases, various repairs to damaged tissue, tendons, cartilage (Meniscus tears), ligaments (ACL) and some bone fractures.
