What is Knee Arthroscopy?
Knee Arthroscopy is a common procedure in which a small camera is used to view the joint. Arthroscopy is able to give doctors better views of the joint to help better treat and diagnose knee problems. Arthroscopy is a very effective tool for treating knee problems; there are more than 4 million knee arthroscopic surgeries performed worldwide each year.
During the arthroscopic knee surgery, the surgeon inserts a camera that is about the size of a pencil into your knee joint. The camera, or arthroscope, projects images of the inside of your knee on a television monitor where the surgeon is able to feel, repair or remove damage tissue with small surgical tools that are inserted through other incisions in the knee.
