However, this medical procedure is also sometimes referred to as ankle arthroscopy or knee arthroscopy, depending on where it’s administered. Regardless of its name, an ankle arthroscopy is a common and necessary operation for patients who suffer from osteoarthritis of the knees.
1. The benefits of an ankle arthroscopy include the ability to examine the joint surfaces and replace the worn-out cartilage with new, stronger tissue.
2. The operation is also sometimes referred to as a knee arthroscopy, and the reason behind this is the same as with other knee arthroscopic procedures: to examine the joint and remove any active or nascent cartilage that is present.
3. A typical operation lasts between 2 and 4 hours, and afterwards, patients are required to stay at a rehabilitation facility for 6 to 8 weeks to help them regain full function.
