Arthroscopy Lateral Release
It has been 6 weeks after (kneecap dislocated) the lateral release + knee arthroscopic and i still cannot bend my knee up to 90 deg. Is this normal?
Patellar dislocation: Dislocation of the patella (kneecap) is a serious injury that requires physical therapy to improve your chance of full recovery. Your orthopedic doctor can best assess what degree of flexion is to be expected depending on how severe the tendon was strained or damaged, and what the surgical appearance of your knee was. ...Read more

Had arthroscopy for "lateral tilt&subluxation of patella w/ flexion-extension. A lateral retinacular release was performed w/ VAPR." How long to heal?
6-12 wks with rehab: An arthroscopic lateral retinacular release is occasionally performed to alleviate lateral patellar facet pain and compression. The recovery usually takes between 6 to 12 weeks under the guidance of physical therapy. Ask your surgeon foe the plan for your specific rehabilitation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Lateral release?: Total release? I'm assuming you meant lateral release. This is a procedure that is performed infrequently to address abnormal patellar (knee cap) tilt. If your pain is around your knee cap and your orthopedist is convinced that you have abnormally knee cap tilt then a lateral release may be helpful. But you must exhaust nonsurgical treatments especially therapy before considering this surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Knee arthroscopy is highly dependent on the procedure being performed along with it. Trimming a torn meniscus can lead to immediate relief and return to function while acl or PCL reconstructions take 8-9 months to recover. It also depends on your conditioning before surgery. Pain from quad weakness and tendinitis will not improve at all after surgery. It will depend more on rehab. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Just had an arthroscopy for a lateral meniscus tear just wondering how long it will be till the stiffness goes away?
Six months after bi-lateral knee arthroscopy including: debridement, lavage and partial lateral and medial menisectomies, still in pain walking/stairs?
Knee MRI says wide separation of the lateral meniscal horns presumably due to radial tear. Arthroscopy found no tear. Still in pain, what next?
Mri showed grade 1 MCI sprain/strain..had arthroscopic surgery on left knee, found 2 tears on my medial and lateral menisci. ?
And the question is?: Though there's a question mark in the sentence, I don't know what you're asking. So far you've said that you've got 2 tears in the medial & lateral menisci of your left knee. Are you wondering WHY MRI only showed a sprain/strain & not the tears which arthroscopic surgery claimed existed? If so, the answer is MRI of the knee is not as sensitive to "seeing" tears as direct visualization. ...Read more
Depends on reason: Arthroscopy is a method of performing surgical procedures. Many joints can be treated arthroscopically. Without knowing the specific joint, the reason for surgery, and the procedure performed, it is impossible to give “normal results.” but, in general, for the right indications, the results of arthroscopic procedures are very good to excellent. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Joint Surgery: Arthroscopy is minimally invasive joint surgery, commonly used for the knee & shoulder, but also for the ankle, hip, wrist, elbow and other joints. A camera with a fiber optic cable is attached to a video screen placed thru a 1 cm incision and other instruments are introduced thru other small incisions to do the work required. The small incisions allow for quicker recovery than open surgery. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Yes: Side effects include the scars of the procedure, which you can see on the skin, but also include the underlying subcutaneous tissue and joint capsule, scarring around the fat pad, which lies just behind the patella tendon, some reactive capsulitis, occasional numbness, especially the lateral (outside) of the knee, and then the side effects of whatever is done, which should include less pain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
