Arthroscopic Knee Surgery Is Not a Cure for Knee Pain Sufferers

Posted Jun 20 2010 2:30pm

The medical community has long known that arthroscopic knee surgery is not a cure, and unfortunately the surgery often leaves a patient’s knee vulnerable to future cartilage or meniscus tears and it creates more arthritis in the knee.   These are the very same conditions that are supposedly being ‘fixed’ with arthroscopic knee surgery. 

I found a retrospective review that was conducted on fifty-two patients who had undergone arthroscopic knee surgery for meniscus tears.  Thirty-two of the fifty-two patients had to repeat arthroscopic knee surgery an average of twenty-six months after the original arthroscopic knee surgery was performed. 

I believe that if a patient facing arthroscopic knee surgery for meniscus/cartilage tears or arthritis in the knees was informed that arthroscopic knee surgery would make their knee more arthritic and leave them vulnerable to future tears they would probably reconsider the decision to have the surgery. 

In my office, one of the most common knee problems that we help treat is post surgical arthroscopic knee pain.   At least sixty percent (if not more) of my patients suffering from knee pain have already had arthroscopic knee surgery at least once, before coming in for care.   At the DFW Spine & Joint Center we offer a combination of non-surgical cold laser therapy and specific therapeutic modalities to effectively treat patients suffering from knee pain after arthroscopic knee surgery. 

If you are still suffering from knee pain ever after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery then find a doctor who specializes in treating knee pain with cold laser therapy.   If you live in the Irving, Dallas, Fort Worth or surrounding areas then call Dr. Alexandra Schnee’s office at 214-596-1051.
