In brief: Knee arthrosccopy

Prior to undegoing knee arthroscopy, as in any other surgical situation, you must be well informed about your non surgical options and should have followed thru with conservative treatment options as outlined by your treating physician.
Once you are scheduled for knee arthroscopy, you must follow the preop instructions provided by your surgeon and the hospital.
