I have severe osteoarthritis in both knees for over 20 years. Over the years when the pain would get unbearable I'd go in for a scope procedure. 1 one my right knee and 4 on my left. The next surgery for my left is knee replacement. I am very fortunate I recover gaily quickly and it'll last me a few years.
