Knee Arthroscopy – Dr Bruce E Ellison MD – Orthopedic Surgery * Spine & Sports Medicine – Offices Near Sequoia Hospital & El Camino Hospital


Mr. G.E. presented to Dr. Bruce E. Ellison MD in June with knee pain. Mr. G.E. recalled twisting his knee the previous Friday, and had been using a crutch to assist in ambulation since that time. Mr. G.E. had not been able to fully extend the knee since his injury. Mr. G.E. knee pain reached 5/10 on pain scale at its worst, and typically increased with significant ambulation or activity. There was increased pain with certain twisting maneuvers of the leg. MRI of his right knee revealed questionable medial meniscus increased signal. After minimal improvement with conservative treatment and topical anti-inflammatory, Dr. Bruce E. Ellison MD performed a knee arthroscopy at El Camino Hospital, Sequoia Hospital. Meniscus fragments were removed and Mr. G.E. returned to normal function. A few days following his knee surgery, Mr. G.E. noted that he no longer had the sharp knee pain that he had prior to surgery.
