Based on your past medical history, physical exam and current symptoms, your doctor is recommending a procedure called knee arthroscopy. This procedure will allow your doctor to examine the inside of your knee joint, determine where problems are and how best to treat them.
Knee problems can be caused from injuries or conditions that you were born with. These problems often will lead to symptoms of knee pain.
Many knee problems can be treated with medication, activity modification and physical therapy. However, since these methods have not been successful, your doctor is recommending a knee arthroscopy for your particular situation.
