Loose Body

Loose Bodies within the knee

Accidents can cause a fragment of cartilage or bone to come loose and float around the joint. Sometimes arthritic conditions may also cause loose bodies inside the joint. Depending on the size and location of the fragment, the orthopaedic surgeon may decide to reattach it or remove it entirely using the arthroscope.


Due to old age, most joints in the body, including the knee, may suffer from wear and tear. This results in pain and discomfort. If medication is not able to control the discomfort, the surgeon may choose to treat arthroscopically by shaving and smoothening the roughened surface of the bone and trimming of any damaged meniscus. Cleaning out the debris often helps reduce the pain.
