How does it work

​FREE EVALUATION OF YOUR FINDINGS

After initial contact via phone or email, we will ask you to provide us with your finding (RTG, SONO or MRI scan), with a brief description of what your goals are for the procedure. This is only used to ensure the best evaluation for your personal needs, and all information sent to us will be held in strict confidence. Of course you are under no obligation at this stage, and the evaluation is completely free of charge. 

 

QUESTIONNAIRE

Next, we will ask you to fill in our questionnaire, as we need to be confident that there are no existing medical conditions which could affect you undergoing the procedure. Please fill in as much information as possible, and we will get back to you with an evaluation of your questionnaire by one of our doctors.

 

DEPOSIT PAYMENT

Once an agreement has been made for the proposed dates, prices, and surgeon who will perform the procedure, the next step will be to pay the deposit to the clinic account. The deposit is a 100% booking guarantee of your date. If you do not show up for the surgery without providing us with a reason, we cannot return the deposit back. Of course in the event that you are ill or if an emergency prevents you from keeping your date and you are able to notify us in a timely manner, we are able to find new dates for you and use this deposit to secure a new date. The outstanding balance must be paid on the day of the surgery (we accept cash, credit cards, or a direct bank transfer into clinic account).

ARTHROSCOPY PROCEDURE

Arthroscopy, known colloquially as ‘key-hole surgery’ is a minimally invasive surgical procedure on a joint during which examination and often, treatment, is carried out by means of an arthroscope. An arthroscope is an endoscopic probe inserted into the joint via a small incision. Used most commonly on the knees, ankles, shoulders, elbows, wrists, and hips, it has the great advantage of not requiring the whole joint to be opened up. And, depending on the area and complexity of the operation, you can often go home on the same day.  Knee problems are those most commonly treated with arthroscopy. An arthroscopy is usually conducted using a general anaesthetic, though sometimes a spinal or local anaesthetic is used. After cleansing of the skin over the joint with antibacterial fluid a small incision is made in the skin close to the joint for the arthroscope to be inserted. This device consists of a very thin metal tube with a light and camera at one end, with the other end connected to a monitor on which the surgeon can see images transmitted from directly inside the joint. A sterile fluid is sometimes pumped into the joint to help aid visibility. Apart from examining the joint, the surgeon can also carry out repair on damaged areas and remove any unnecessary tissue using miniature surgical instruments.

POST PROCEDURE CARE

If the procedure is carried out without the need for hospitalization, ie, as an out-patient, you can go home on the same day. If you’ve had a general anaesthetic you’ll be required to stay in hospital for one to two days. Recovery time will vary on the joint operated on and the type of injury corrected. For the simpler type of meniscus arthroscopies it’s necessary to use crutches for 1 to 2 weeks. After more complex operations, and especially if there’s a risk to the stability of the knee, a knee brace is worn. But generally, recovery time is relatively quick, as the miniaturized instruments used do less damage to the joint area and its connective tissue.
