Knee arthroscopy that's trusted in the community

Arthroscopic knee surgery is an innovative type of minimally invasive surgery that allows your surgeon to precisely access areas of your knee. As with other types of arthroscopic surgery, a thin tube with a camera attached (arthroscope) helps your surgeon diagnose and treat a variety of knee problems.

Our orthopedic surgeons at Goshen Physicians Orthopedics & Sports Medicine have extensive experience in performing arthroscopic surgery to relieve pain, release a locking knee and fix a torn meniscus. Your surgeon will be board certified and trained in performing arthroscopic knee surgery.

We’re dedicated to providing integrated orthopedic care, including knee arthroscopy, in Goshen, Nappanee and Shipshewana, IN. Call (574) 534-2548 for an appointment and to learn if you’re a good candidate for arthroscopic knee surgery.

Do I need arthroscopic knee surgery?

You may benefit from arthroscopic knee surgery if you’ve been diagnosed with any of the following conditions:

Damaged cartilage or ligaments

● Severe fractures

● Misalignment

Inflammation inside your joint

Sometimes anti-inflammatory medications and injections can heal the knee damage. When non-surgical methods don’t fix your knee problem, arthroscopic surgery may help.
