In brief: Camera assisted work

Arthroscopic knee surgery involves operating on the knee to remove, repair, or replace different injured structures without making big incisions.
A small 1/4 inch incision is made first and a small camera the diameter of a pencil is inserted into the knee to look around. The inside of the knee is observed on a tv screen while the procedure is carried out through additional small incisions.

In brief: See below

It is wear 2-3 small incisions are made around the knee so that a small camera can be introduced to view the structures.
Thru the other incision instruments can be placed to remove bone or cartilage if needed.
