Are there benefits in having knee arthroscopic surgery for arthritis?

Possibly

Arthritis
There was a studydone in Texas a few years ago that suggested that arthroscopy forknee problems was not more effective than placebo.Having said that I have seen people improve as well as no improvement after arthroscopy. If there is a clear cut meniscus tear, arthroscopy can be helpful. If there is generalized arthritis, I feel it is less likely to be helpful . Others may have a different opinion

I had knee arthroscopic surgery July 2013, Dr found arthritis in during surgery, and now it hurts to straighten my leg out is that normal?

See your ORS

Not sure how advanced your rheumatoid arthritis is in your knee or the condition of your meniscal cartilages , etc. If your arthritis is progressing weight bearing should be more painful. Pain w/ 'straightening' out your leg may be related to synovial( 'joint lining')inflammation/ hypertrophy often seen in RA patients. See your ORS for evaluation or consider getting 2nd opinion. Best of Luck!

Dr. Marc Tressler answered:

It's Week 4. I feel stiffness on my leg after Arthroscopic Surgery. What's the cause and solution? I can barely bend 60 degree.

Postop swelling

Good_posture
It is common to recover quickly from a "simple" knee scope. However, if more extensive work was done, the recover can take up to 12 weeks. The stiffness is likely from swelling after blood pooling in the joint after the procedure. The range of motion at 0-60 is a bit behind schedule, but can be overcome. You need aggressive therapy and regular ice therapy. See your surgeon for advice.

They usually just numb up your arm and sedated you.Your wrist is distracted and filled with fluid. 3-4 small portals (holes) are made to evaluate the wirst joints. Thru the portals things can be shaved, or fixed sometimes findings require an open surgery. A splint is applied for a few weeks or more depending on what is done.

Is calf pain normal after arthroscopic surgery?

Be careful

Calf_pain_
Call your surgeon ASAP. No one else is better prepared to address your concern. If your calf pain is accompanied by swelling of the same leg - you need to be in the emergency room now.

How is arthroscopic surgery typically performed?

Outpatient surgery

Adegruccio
2-4 small 1 cm incisions. General anesthesia time is short, but can also be done under spinal anesthetic. The joint is thoroughly inspected and imaged. Damaged tissues are repaired or removed under direct visualization. More complex procedures can be combined with this as well, changing the incisions and anesthesia time.
