The doctor may inject a local anesthetic to numb the impacted knee only. In case both knees are affected, regional anesthesia is mainly used to numb the person from the waist down.
The procedure begins with some small incisions in the knee. Surgeons use a pump to push saline solution into the area. This is likely to create a cavity the joint. This makes it easier for the surgeon to see their work. The camera attached to the arthroscope enables the surgeons to explore the area and detect any issues. In case the problem can be fixed with arthroscopy, the surgeons will insert small instruments through the arthroscope. And they use them to resolve the problem. Once the problem is fixed, the surgeons will remove the tools. They will use the pump to drain the saline from the knee. They will put stitches on the incisions. In various cases, the procedure takes less than an hour.
