I had 2 arthroscopy, still limited opening, clicks, anteriour disk displacement wr .Surgeon suggested open joint surgery. I am afraid. What are the risks?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Slightly more

All surgery used 2 be done open when i started practice, & infections were rare as they r with scopes.
Main difference is more post op pain & longer rehab depending what is done.
