Bucknell Univ -- By its nature, arthroscopic surgery is a procedure that allows surgeons to repair or remove tissue from a joint with minimal disruption to other critical parts. The surgeon inserts instruments and a small camera through tiny portals or incisions, monitoring the instruments' movements on a television screen. The procedure generally presents a lower risk of infection and blood loss, reducing the recovery time for patients.
