Drilling is an arthroscopic procedure similar to microfracture in which multiple holes are made in the subchondral bone with the help of a surgical drill or wire to create a healing response. The limiting factor of this procedure is the heat produced by the drilling can injure the surrounding tissues, therefore some surgeons do not recommend this procedure.
