    Mary-
    thanks for the response, but the surgery was not done by arthroscopy. Here's how the note reads:

    Surgical procedure: Bilateral tenosynovectomy of the infrapatellar tendon

    longitudinal incision was made from the distal pole of the patella down to the tibial tubercle. On each side the subcutaneous tissue was separated away from the tenosynovium and the tenosynovium was peeled up of the tendon and resected.

    that is basically the entire note. Any suggestions??
    Thanks for the help.
