About Arthroscopic Surgery

Arthroscopic surgery is an advanced surgical technique that allows orthopedic surgeons to see inside a joint without having to surgically open the joint. Arthroscopy is used for diagnosing and treating sports injuries and orthopedic conditions. The diagnostic capability of arthroscopy is highly precise for damage to the bones, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and muscles that make up a joint.

Arthroscopy is a far less invasive procedure than traditional open surgery. Guided by a miniature viewing instrument, or scope, arthroscopic surgery requires only a few small incisions.

An arthroscope contains a lens, lighting system, and camera that allows the orthopedic surgeon to view magnified images on a video screen or take photographs and record video. The doctor can also perform surgery by inserting thin instruments through the scope. Arthroscopy is associated with a decreased risk of infection, faster recovery, and less pain, bleeding, and swelling.
