An arthroscope may be used not only for diagnostic processes but an array of medical repairs, such debridement, or cleaning, of a joint to eliminate components of torn cartilage, ligament repair, and synovectomy (elimination of the joint lining). Each is done without a significant, unpleasant operation, and, since arthroscopy needs only tiny cuts, many processes can be done on an outpatient foundation with neighborhood anesthetic.
