Introduction to Knee Arthroscopy
   
  Arthroscopy is an endoscopic surgical procedure in which a small tube like instrument called an arthroscope is inserted into a joint with a small nick. Fluid is then pumped into the joint to allow the surgeon to thoroughly examine the knee and identify the real problem. During the procedure, the surgeon also can insert surgical instruments through other small pin holes into your knee to repair damaged tissues and cartilage or remove loose pieces. During the procedure which is performed under regional anaeshtesia the patient is awake and if interested can watch the procedure.
