What is Knee Arthroscopy?

Knee arthroscopy is a surgery that uses a tiny camera to look inside your knee from a small incision. It allows doctors to view and repair knee issues like a torn meniscus, broken cartilage, or Baker’s cyst.

Dr. Martin specializes in treating conditions affecting the knee, among other joints. He can diagnose your knee condition and provide a variety of treatment options including Knee Arthroscopy.
