Arthroscopic surgery for the knee is one of the most common orthopedic procedures performed globally. Significant attention recently has focused on the role of arthroscopic surgery in the setting of osteoarthritis and its role in degenerative knee pathology. A number of recently performed randomized control trials and systematic reviews suggest limited benefit for arthroscopic surgery and partial meniscectomy for this indication. With this recent focus on arthroscopy use for osteoarthritis it is often forgotten that arthroscopy plays an important role in the management of other pathology involving the knee in patients who may have a concomitant diagnosis of osteoarthritis. This evidence-based review will highlight indications for when arthroscopic intervention is warranted in such patients.
