Knee pain is one of the most frequent pains that lead patients to visit an orthopedic specialist.
This pain can be the consequence of an injury in the area or a symptom of an infection. Knee pain can have devastating effects on our daily habits, so it is essential to visit a professional to make a diagnosis.

Evaluation and treatment
Knee ailments always require a manual examination and are usually accompanied by diagnostic tests to know the extent of each injury, as well as to understand the best procedure for the healing of the affected area.
- Ruptured anterior cruciate ligament.
- Rupture of the posterior horn of the internal meniscus.
- Chondromalacia patella.
- Iliotibial band syndrome.
- Joint effusion at knee.
Knee arthroscopy is a surgical procedure that allows the knee joint to be viewed through small incisions through the skin. Arthroscopy is used to diagnose and treat a wide range of knee problems.
During knee arthroscopy, your surgeon inserts a small camera, called an arthroscope, into the joint and displays images that will guide the surgical instruments.
Among the advantages of arthroscopy are rapid recovery due to less aggressive surgery, less pain, faster functional recovery and shorter hospital stay or on an outpatient basis.
Lesions or pathologies that a few years ago could not be remedied without the use of the scalpel, can now be solved by applying much less invasive techniques.
It is a particularly useful technique to recover injuries in poorly vascularized structures such as ligaments, tendons, cartilage or fascia. This therapy is used especially for chronic injuries (tendinopathies, pubalgia, tennis elbow, cartilage degeneration, etc.). It can also be used to recover muscle injuries, bone regeneration and to accelerate the recovery process after surgery.
