Arthroscopy allows the surgeon to see inside your joint without making a large incision. Surgeons can even repair some types of joint damage during arthroscopy, with pencil-thin surgical instruments inserted through additional small incisions.
You may be a candidate for arthroscopic knee surgery if you have any of the following conditions:
- Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears
- Arthritic deterioration
- Misaligned kneecap
- Swollen synovium
- Torn meniscus
- Broken bones
You can schedule an arthroscopic knee surgery evaluation with top-ranked, board-certified orthopedic surgeons Brian Mehling, MD and Pavel Yufit, MD of Mehling Orthopedics to see if this type of procedure is right for you.
