A huge thank you to you and the rest of the team at the Fortius Surgical centre for making me feel so at ease yesterday. As far as surgery and ops go, it was a relatively stress free process and dare I say it, somewhat enjoyable.

Arthroscopy allows surgeons to use a type of keyhole surgery to diagnose and treat joint problems.
Sometimes the meniscus can be repaired using small sutures (stitches)
The knee joint consists of the lower end of the thigh bone (femur) and the top of the shin bone (tibia). At the front of the knee is the knee cap, also known as the patella. The patella moves up and down in a groove on the front of the femur as the knee bends and straightens.
