In brief: Open surgery/therapy
Knee arthroscopy is one of the most common orthopaedic procedures performed in the U.
S. For the treatment of cartilage, mensical, and ligamentous injuries. Arthroscopy is also useful to remove loose bodies, treat early knee joint infections, assist with fracture management about the knee joint. Physical therapy or rest is often prescribed to allow healing and recovery without surgery.
