What is the recovery time ?
Knee arthroscopy is usually performed as a daycase procedure. Patients are able to fully weight bear following the surgery but may need 1 – 2 weeks off work to allow the knee to recover from a simple arthroscopy. If more complex arthroscopic surgery has been performed then this may necessitate a longer period off-work and supervised physiotherapy during the recovery stage.
