Brace after arthroscopic knee realignment?

Hey. I went to my orthopedic and I am having an arthroscopic knee surgery in December. I was wondering... will I have to wear a knee mobilizer after surgery?

Thanks for the help. :)

It really depends on what procedure is being done arhtoscopically. For a simple menisectomy, probably not. For a meniscus repair, maybe. For a ligament reconstruction, usually.

He's doing a knee realignment. I've heard you do but I've also heard you don't.
