Knee arthroscopy

How many cuts (incisions) will I have and how long will they be? You will have 2 (sometimes 3) incisions made either side of the knee joint measuring 1cm in length; they are closed with nylon stitches (sutures) which are removed 10-14 days after the operation. Will I need physiotherapy? You will be seen by a physiotherapist before you leave hospital. In addition, arrangements will be made for you to see a physiotherapist from one week after surgery.
