Arthroscopic surgery is surgery performed via arthroscopy or keyhole surgery.
The term infers that the problem inside the knee was dealt with via arthroscopy, as opposed to the term 'diagnostic arthroscopy', where a surgeon may just look inside a joint to see what is wrong.
This course gives one an overview of the anatomy of the knee as the surgeon sees it during arthroscopy. The reader will get an idea of how the surgeon's view inside the knee is dependent upon the positioning of the portals and instruments.
