What Are My Treatment Options?

Arthroscopy uses a device called an arthroscope. This small, pen-shaped instrument has a miniature video camera attached to the end. The arthroscope is inserted through a small incision in the knee.

Important Safety Information

The success of the knee arthroscopy procedure depends on age, weight, activity level and other factors. There are potential risks and recovery takes time. People with conditions limiting rehabilitation should not have this surgery. Only an orthopaedic surgeon can tell if knee arthroscopy is right for you.
