Arthroscopy - Knee (Orthopedic)
Body Area: Legs / Feet
Body Parts: Knees
Symptoms: Warm to the Touch
Arthroscopy is also known as key hole surgery due to its minimally invasive nature. A Knee Arthroscopy can be used to remove debris from within the knee such as a bone fragment, and also to treat arthritis or chronic knee pain. Small tools and incisions are used, which can sometimes give a faster recovery to a patient than someone who undergoes total knee joint surgery. An Arthroscopy can also be used to get a better look inside the joint before a different procedure.
