Arthroscopic Knee Surgery 

Since the knee is such a complex joint, it is susceptible to a variety of injuries. Some of these injuries require surgical intervention to properly fix. When many patients think of knee surgery, they automatically think of full knee replacements with long, painful recovery times. Although the surgeons at Southland Orthopaedics do provide full and partial knee replacements, we also perform knee arthroscopy. 

Using extremely small instruments and tiny incisions, arthroscopic knee surgery provides patients with faster recovery times, shorter hospital stays, and significantly less scarring. We are also proud to offer alternatives to knee replacement surgery, including cortisone injections for knee pain. When you become a patient at our practice, you can put your ‘knee replacement surgeon near me’ searches to rest.
