John Hopkins jumps into the Arthroscopy Debate… As you know from reading this blog, there is little evidence that arthroscopic knee surgery to “repair” a meniscus or “clean up” cartilage works.

With all the evidence that this procedure doesn’t work to help patients, we still see it being performed, so we applaud the newsletter for informing patients.
