What should I expect from an arthroscopic surgery procedure?
First, Dr. Khaimov reviews your medical history and performs a physical exam to make sure you're a good candidate for arthroscopic surgery. Then, he creates a personalized surgical plan and explains what you should expect.
Because arthroscopic surgery uses small incisions, it involves less pain, faster recovery, and a reduced risk of complications. Dr. Khaimov may perform arthroscopy as an outpatient procedure so you can avoid a hospital stay.
Even though arthroscopy is minimally invasive, you still need some type of anesthesia and should schedule downtime for recovery. These factors vary depending on your specific needs, so Dr. Khaimov discusses them with you before your procedure. After your surgery, you begin a rehabilitation plan that includes physical therapy.
