In brief: Advance as tolerated

A diagnostic knee arthroscopy is a limited procedure, whereby the joint is entered and the staus of the named structures (cartilage, synovium, ligaments, and meniscii) are all documented.
No actual debridement, repai, or reconstruction of injured tissues is performed. Because of this low morbidity, your activities can essentially advance as tolerated. Discuss details of your case with your surgeon.

In brief: Knee arthroscopy

Diagnostic knee arthroscopy involves the inspection of the entire knee joint with a 4 mm camera called an arthroscope.
The articular cartilage of the femur, patella and tibial plateau is inspected, the menisci and cruciate ligaments are viewed and the synovial lining is viewed.

In brief: Treat?

This is an arthroscopy that is performed to aid in the diagnosis of the pain or problem. Done when the exam and imaging is inconclusive and non surgical care has not worked.
