Background information on Arthroscopy [When available]

Arthroscopy (also called arthroscopic surgery) is a minimally invasive surgical procedure in which a physical examination of the interior of a joint is performed using an arthroscope, a type of endoscope that is inserted into the join through a small incision.

The advantage over traditional knee endoscopies is that only small incisions need to be made, and the joint does not have to be opened up fully. This reduces the recovery time of the patient and may increase the rate of surgical success due to less trama to the connective tissue. It is especially useful for professional athletes, who frequently injure knee joints and require fast healing time.

The instruments used are also smaller than traditional instruments. Surgeons view the joint area on a video monitor, and can diagnose and repair broken joint tissue, such as ligaments and menisci).
