Text in this example:
Arthroscopy of the Knee Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure in which a small (~5mm in diameter) fiberoptic telescope, called an arthroscope, is inserted into a joint. Fluid is then inserted into the joint to distend the joint and to allow for the visualization of the structures within that joint. Usually the surgery is viewed on a monitor.
The most common types of arthroscopic surgery include removal or repair of a torn meniscus (cartilage), ligament reconstruction, removal of loose debris, and trimming damaged cartilage.
Incisions are very small (approximately 1/8 inch), which creates less damage and allows faster healing.
