When you receive this treatment, a small incision will be made in your knee. A tiny camera will then be inserted, and the surgeon will use the images provided by the camera to guide very small surgical instruments to repair the damage that’s been done to your knee because of the injury.

You will still need to be mindful of your knee and your injury after the surgery is performed. Dr. Tchejeyan will provide you with full instructions for taking care of your knee after your surgery.
