Arthroscopy is the technique that involves making tiny incisions to access the area of interest. Through these tiny incisions (often a total of 2 incisions per procedure), the surgeon inserts a thin metal tube (portal, less than half a cm. wide) containing a camera connected to a television monitor in the operating theatre.
