Arthroscopic Menisectomy (Knee Arthoscopy)

Arthroscopic menisectomy, also known as knee arthroscopy, uses a small camera to view the interior of the knee. Small incisions are made in the knee to place the camera and the surgical tools used for the procedure. Knee arthroscopy is done for damage to the meniscus, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), joint lining, kneecap and cartilage. It is also done to remove cysts and fix some knee fractures.
