Chronic knee pain can be the result of sports-related injuries or degenerative conditions like arthritis, and can interfere with day-to-day life. If you live in the Durham, North Carolina, area and are experiencing knee pain, the orthopedic specialists at North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic can help. We offer a wide array of medical services at our community-based clinic for individuals with knee pain, including knee arthroscopy procedures.
Understanding Arthroscopic Surgery
While nonsurgical treatment options are usually the first consideration for our sports medicine team, knee arthroscopy is sometimes necessary to diagnose and treat knee injuries. This type of procedure involves the insertion of a tiny camera into the joint through a small incision, allowing the surgeon to investigate the source of your discomfort. Once the issue has been identified, the surgeon can correct the problem using instruments within the arthroscope. Some of the arthroscopic knee procedures North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic performs include:
- ACL, PCL, and LCL reconstructions
- Meniscal repairs
- Cartilage reconstructions with allografts
- Unicondylar knee arthroplasties
- And more
Determining Your Treatment Options
When you meet with a sports medicine physician at North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic, your physician will discuss your symptoms and medical history, perform a physical exam to help determine the source of your discomfort, and discuss your treatment options.
