What Is An Arthroscopy?
Arthroscopy involves inserting a tube into the knee through a small incision in the skin. The tube is equipped with a miniature camera and allows the surgeon to have a ‘look around’ and evaluate the state of the knee structures. Often, it will be immediately clear on the surgeon’s screen what needs to be done. At that point a second incision may be made to allow for the insertion of a surgical tool to correct the problem.
