A physiotherapeutic regimen has been devised for use in cases of arthroscopic surgery of knee. This regimen was used in 49 cases of arthroscopy/arthroscopic surgery. While patients with diagnostic arthroscopy/arthroscopic meniscectomies recovered fully within 7 and 12 days respectively. The patients with open partial or total meniscectomies took 3 to 6 weeks to recover knee functions. Thus arthroscopic surgery does not compromise joint function.
