“We recently purchased the necessary devices for nanoscopy based on positive feedback. Now they are available to us almost all the time. Nanoscopy is suitable for every patient in diagnostic mode when we need to make a decision or find out what is happening in the joint. For the knee joint , nanoscopy is ideal.” said Mayor Janošec and further clarified: “We can easily tell quickly what’s really bothering the patient and in some cases even treat places, for example, uneven cartilage, perform smaller tissue removal or clean the menisci, and all this under local anesthesia.”

According to a hospital representative, this procedure is fully covered by health insurance. “In the Jesenice area, even due to the unavailability or very little time availability of magnetic resonance imaging in the surrounding cities, this method can partially replace it and greatly speed up the diagnosis,” added a spokesperson for the AGEL group Adam Knesl. Both the doctor and the patient then have the information needed to decide on the next available procedure earlier.

“The procedure itself takes about 15 to 20 minutes, plus the necessary administration. After surgery, patients go straight for home care, where we recommend a three to four day rest period.
