What is knee arthroscopy?

Posted on

Knee arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical technique performed to diagnose and treat problems in the knee joint. The arthroscope, a tiny camera, is inserted into the knee, allowing the surgeon to thoroughly investigate the knee and address the issues using small instruments within the arthroscope.

In general, knee arthroscopy is followed by a short recovery and almost no downtime. But, the recovery time and prognosis depend on the severity of the knee problem and the complexity of the procedure performed along with the knee arthroscopy.
