What is Knee Arthroscopy?
Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure on the knee to repair or replace a damaged meniscus, the C-shaped discs that cushion the knee. Meniscal repair is a relatively simple procedure that can be done as an outpatient arthroscopic surgery (keyhole surgery) so that the patient can go home on the same day.
