Shoulder arthroscopy will show almost all problems within the shoulder, but is only used these days for surgical treatment of diagnosed disorders. Diagnosis should be achieved by X-rays and other tests. I would need to be clear therefore if you have been referred for it as a test or treatment. If as a test I would respectfully suggest getting another opinion.

Hello, sorry to hear you have twisted your knee. The right thing is to have an MRI scan. If you have a tear and there are no other causes see your GP for a referral to an Orthopaedic surgeon. They will check that the scan findings match what you are experiencing in your knee and talk to you about arthroscopy. The wait time isn't too long, perhaps 18 weeks. James
