In brief: Rare

Infection stiffness scar blood clot anesthesia risks instrument breakage all very rare.

In brief: Few complications

Are noted with arthroscopy.
Like any surgery there is a risk of infection although significantly less than open procedures. There is a risk of cartilage damage from the instruments. There is a risk of cutaneous nerve injury. Dvt and other medical complications while reported are rare.
