Knee surgery meniscus
Damage to the knee cartilage can occur at any point in your life and may require a procedure known as a menisectomy or partial menisectomy. This operation, called an arthroscopy, removes all or part of the damaged cartilage and is one of the most commonly performed procedures by UK knee surgeons.
The procedure involves the insertion of a tiny camera, with a telescope attached, into a small incision at the front of the knee. Via a separate incision, the surgeon will use small instruments to cut away the damaged cartilage. The operation only takes around half an hour; however, since accessing the torn cartilage is often difficult, arthroscopic surgery should only be performed by a highly experienced surgeon.

Your safety is protected. Not all private hospitals are the same. Some private hospitals don’t have any on-site critical care facilities in the event of an emergency. Our consultants have access to more critical care beds 24/7 than any other private healthcare group in the UK. If you need urgent care you’ll receive it instantly – it’s very rare for us to transfer patients to another hospital. Our MRSA infection rates are nearly five times lower than the national average. And we have zero recorded cases of some other common infections.
