Loose bodies/spurs surgery in the knee

Loose bodies are small bits of bone or cartilage that have broken off and are in the joint. Spurs are extra bits of bone that have grown. Loose bodies and spurs can make it more difficult to move your knee, and surgery can help correct that.

Loose bodies and spurs in the knee can be painful and make it difficult to move your knee. If non-surgical treatment doesn’t work, your doctor may recommend surgery.

Minimally invasive surgery can be used to go into your knee and remove them. They can also be dealt with during a total knee replacement surgery.
