I see lots online about torn knee meniscus, but not on jaws. I am told I need arthroscopic surgery. How invasive is this and what is the recovery like after surgery. My wife works for an endodontist and sees lots of patients after surgery for broken jaws and cancer. She says it's much worse than they are told before surgery. What about this one. I am a non-profit organizer for school events and expect to be very active in leadership over the next few months. I need to know what to expect.
