Some of them are here.


  • It takes lesser time to re-establish joint after arthroscopic surgery. It almost takes up to six weeks to recover.

  • Even after sometime a person can walk easily if he is not feeling any pain. But most of the people can be able to walk after one to two weeks.

  • It is not a major surgery and does not require any long treatment. We just need a small point from where we can insert arthroscope and visualize the internal joint with the help of camera.

  • Arthroscopic surgery has a very low risk level as compared to open surgery. It decreases the rate of infection. While open surgery requires a large but single cut to perform.

  • One of the benefits of this surgery is that it does not require much time as compared to surgery. The patient does not need to remain unconscious during the surgery.
