welcome to HealthcareMagic
If the surgery cannot be postponed you can get the surgery done even during the periods but you will become uncomfortable.Periods will not affect the anaesthesia but it will be if you discuss this issue with your operating surgeon and get the surgery postponed.Knee arthroscopy is not a emergency surgery so if possible for you you can even wait and get it done after periods.
