It Didn't Take a Knee Surgeon to Know This

May 09, 1998

In the May 4 Morning Briefing, a reference was made that Jay Buhner insisted on being awake for his knee arthroscopy and (that) the procedure be videotaped. As a point of reference, all arthroscopies are done with a video monitor to guide the surgeon, and taping the procedure is standard. As far as being awake, this is the preferred method.
