In brief: Arthroscopic
Surgery to TMJ is a last resort proceedure for treatment of TMJ disorder depending upon dignisis but all option should be tried first.
It is done artiscopically where a small incision is made ( two) so they can view the area and go in and correct , remove pieces , repair , disc or whatever is necessary.

In brief: Scope easier
Surgery usually last option.
Scope much more benign. Almost always try scope before open surgery.

In brief: Varies.
It is usually very tolerable.
However, more pleaant under sedation with a recovery taking a few weeks as the swelling and some bruising is to be expected in the area.
