Arthroscopic knee surgery for arthritis -- a procedure performed hundreds of thousands of times a year -- does not reduce joint pain or improve knee function, according to new research released Wednesday. The study of 178 adults with moderate to severe arthritis found that the surgery, in which damaged bone and cartilage are removed through tiny incisions, had no benefits beyond nonsurgical treatments, such as physical therapy. The report in the New England Journal of Medicine confirmed the results of a 2002 study that caused many orthopedic surgeons to discontinue the practice.
