Treatment for Arthroscopy in Knee Injuries
In general, regional or local anesthetic, knee arthroscopy may be performed. Your surgeon will create portals after an adequate anesthesia for access to the knee joint.

A camera is placed in a joint via one portal and small instruments can be used to tackle the problem through others.
