What is Knee Arthroscopy?

Knee arthroscopy involves a surgeon using a small scope (camera) to look within your knee. This minimally invasive outpatient procedure allows an orthopedic surgeon to view the knee joint without making a large incision. In fact, during knee arthroscopy only three tiny incisions are required. Once incisions are made, the surgeon uses the small camera, called an arthroscope, to guide tiny surgical instruments throughout the joint. While using this tool, the surgeon diagnoses and treats your condition in one quick procedure.
