Knee adhesiolysis

What is Knee Adhesiolysis

A minimally invasive procedure called "lysis of adhesions" removes tightness and scar tissue from the knee by making small incisions and using surgical instruments. Cutting bands of aberrant tissue known as adhesions are called lysis of adhesions. The knee joint may develop scar tissue due to an accident or previous surgery.

Performing Surgery

When to go for surgery

Your doctor could advise if you have joint inflammation, an injury, or long-term joint damage. Any joint can undergo arthroscopy. The most frequent locations are the knee, shoulder, elbow, ankle, hip, or wrist. Knee arthroscopy frequently helps lessen or even eliminate pain brought on by soft tissue or cartilage injury. Knee scoping is often chosen above alternative treatments by both doctors and patients. This is because only a little incision is required for the arthroscope to be used by the orthopaedic knee surgeon.

The Procedure

The scar tissue can be removed when doing a minimally invasive knee arthroscopy. Orthopaedic doctors may view the knee inside using arthroscopy without making a sizable incision. A few small incisions, each approximately the size of a buttonhole, are used by the surgeon to do surgery.

Medical Consultation

Post Surgery Care

Approximately six weeks will be needed for you to recuperate. It will take more time to recuperate if your doctor restores the injured tissue. Before your knee strength and mobility are back to normal, you might need to cut back on your activities. Additionally, you could be enrolled in a physical therapy programme.

  • Comply with all medical advice.

  • Always follow your surgeon's recommendations and instructions.

  • Once you are permitted, go for frequent walks.

  • Eat well and sleep well.

  • Engage in physical and occupational therapy activities.
