Although arthroscopy can be used to treat many problems, the outcome of your surgery will often be determined by the degree of injury or damage found in the your joint. For example surgery done for meniscal tear or loose bodies when the patient has no other problem (like arthritis) is usually uncomplicated and most patient can expect full recovery. Arthroscopic removal of synovium can be of great benefit to patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Arthroscopic reconstruction of ligament and repair of meniscus in the knee is much more complicated with prolonged recovery and more variable results.
Remember, that people who have arthroscopy can have many different diagnosis and pre-existing conditions. So each patients arthroscopic surgery is unique to that person. Recovery time will reflect that individuality.
