My Lysis was 40 weeks post-op. I have noticed (what seems to be) some of the scar tissue coming back a year later.

I had the lysis procedure done about eight months after TKR. About 10 months ago.

It is an arthroscopic procedure in which they cut out much of the scar tissue. They will usually do a manipulation at the same time as you are already under anesthesia. I had a manipulation planned and my Dr. wanted to scope me while I was out. He said there was so much scar tissue that I would not have been able to overcome it with P.T. So he performed the lysis procedure and it helped quite a bit.

I had lysis and it helped quite a bit. I still have to exercise all the time, but I can do about anything I want now.

I had arthroscopic scar tissue removal surgery and it helped tremendously. Because it is done arthroscopically, there is less chance of scar tissue returning than open surgery.

I got the same reply when I met with a stem cell doctor.

From my experience, you don't get the burning pain pain from post-op. It is necessary to do more repetitive re-hab though.

Arthroscopic surgery
A growing number of surgeons are now turning to minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery to remove the scar tissue. This process is called arthrolysis.

Specialized arthroscopic lysis of adhesions knee procedures such as anterior interval releases may be indicated and utilized to great success, in the hands of an appropriately trained specialist.
