The experience in applying a new method of treating patients with Baker’s cyst is described. The method is based on laser-induced thermotherapy using a special dual-port introducer. It has been shown that the use of the developed surgical instruments makes it possible to reduce the time and cost of the procedure and to increase its safety. It also allows the period of rehabilitation to be reduced in comparison with the conventional surgical methods of treatment. Based on the results of the application of the new method and equipment, practical recommendations have been formulated that make it possible to individualize the treatment of patients with Baker’s cyst.
