Mr Josh Kempthorne - Christchurch Hip, Knee & Musculoskeletal Tumour Surgeon
Private Service, Orthopaedics
Several small incisions (cuts) are made on the knee through which is inserted a small telescopic instrument with a tiny camera attached (arthroscope). This allows the surgeon to look inside the joint, identify problems and, in some cases, make repairs to damaged tissue.
