Drilling

Drilling

In this surgical procedure, doctors use arthroscopy to make small incisions around the knee and insert a tiny camera to guide them through surgery. They drill small holes, or microfractures/a>, into the bone of the damaged area to stimulate the production of cells that create new cartilage. In some cases, the heat from the drill can damage the tissue.
