Knee pain and trauma can be quite sudden and intense, often literally bringing you to your knees. Pain in the knee can be the result of a condition that has developed over time, from overuse or from the occurrence of a recent sports injury. In some circumstances, conditions such as knee arthritis may create extreme bone and joint discomfort, in which case knee surgery may be a treatment option.

Common knee injuries and conditions treated by our orthopedic knee specialists and surgeons include:

  • ACL, MCL or PCL strains or tears
  • Chondral defect
  • Meniscal tears
  • Knee arthritis/osteoarthritis
  • Knee bursitis
  • Knee dislocation or fracture
  • Patellofemoral pain/runner’s knee
  • Tendon tears, tendinopathy and tendonitis

Make an appointment for evaluation if you experience any of the following symptoms:

  • A popping or snapping noise in or around the knee
  • Feel like your knee gave out while walking, running, jumping or turning
  • Have severe joint pain, pain in the knee, pain in the kneecap or pain behind the knee
  • Cannot bend or move the knee
  • Begin limping or are unable to walk comfortably
  • Have swelling of the knee, joint or calf area

Knee Arthroscopy

Knee arthroscopy, or “knee scope,” is a minimally invasive procedure used to examine, diagnose and treat the source of knee pain or other condition in your knee. During a knee arthroscopy, an orthopedic surgeon makes small incisions at the knee and inserts a small camera called an arthroscope, as well as other surgical tools to perform the procedure, to examine the inside of the knee joint. Arthroscopy is commonly performed in an outpatient setting, allowing patients to go home the same day. Patients typically experience less pain and a quicker recovery with an arthroscopic procedure, in contrast to open surgery.

Knee arthroscopy at Central Indiana Orthopedics can be performed to treat the following knee injuries and conditions:

  • ACL reconstruction
  • Removal of loose fragments of bone or cartilage, diseased or inflamed joint lining or bone spurs
  • Torn meniscus
  • Treatment for conditions of the kneecap or knee sepsis
