Soft Tissue Knee Surgery is usually required for people who have a problem with their knee, this may relate to a previous injury or damage to a structure within the knee other than the bone itself. This includes the ligaments such as the anterior cruciate ligament, shock absorbing cartilage (meniscus) or the gliding (articular) cartilage.
You may need surgery if:
The majority of surgery performed for soft tissue knee problems is done by keyhole (arthroscopy). Occasionally more complicated or open procedures are needed depending on the exact nature of the surgery needed. The consultant and their team will discuss the exact specifics of the surgery at your appointment.
If you are suffering from these symptoms, we would advise you to contact your GP in the first instance, who may refer you to an Orthopaedic Surgeon to discuss possible treatment options.
