Under the direction of Dr. Alwin Almeida, Senior Surgeon, Orthopaedics and Joint Replacement Surgery, thousands of patients are now experiencing freedom from knee pain and increased mobility as a result of the surgical care they received from our team of world-class orthopaedic surgeons.

Indications for Arthroscopic Knee Surgery

Arthroscopy is used ​to ​diagnos​e​ and repair​ meniscal injuries, restore anterior cruciate ligament ​(ACL) ​​or posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) tears, remove debris, perform lateral release and treat microfractures near the joint.​ This type of minimally invasive surgery is precise and controlled, resulting in minimal intraoperative trauma, reduced scarring, and quicker postoperative healing time.

If the following symptoms persist after nonsurgical methods have been exhausted, surgery may be indicated:

Swelling
Instability
Functional limitations
Pain
