knee arthroscopy 28-May-2013 At 10:39:19 AM prb
To answer your original question PDRM, it will depend on how much work the surgeon needs to do. In my case, a washing machine-sized boulder went through me on the Dent du Geant causing a torn medial ligament, a partially torn ACL and a tear in the lateral meniscus (and a squashed foot which really hurt!) At arthroscopy, all they did was put a few stitches in the meniscus and remove a piece of cartilage about the size of a 5c coin. I climbed in a knee brace for a while after that which prevented any impulsive, damaging moves. If you need a lot of cartilage removed like ODH, it's obviously a different story.
