What is Arthroscopic Surgery?
Minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery differs from traditional surgical treatment. Instead of large surgical cuts disturbing healthy tissue to fix an injury, arthroscopic surgery creates small incisions that precisely target affected tissue, with minimal impact on surrounding tissue.
Your orthopaedic surgeon inserts a small, pencil-sized camera, light and instruments into the incision. The camera projects a magnified image of the affected joint tissue onto a monitor for clear, easy viewing and operation.
Because arthroscopic joint surgery incisions are so small, and our surgeon so precise, there is a very minimal impact on healthy tissues. It can be used for both treatment and diagnosis purposes. Most patients recover from this treatment much faster and with far fewer post-op complications.
Can Arthroscopic Surgery Help Me Recover from Joint Pain?
Minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery is a great treatment option for many patients to recover from conditions including:
- Knee, shoulder, elbow, wrist or ankle joint inflammation (synovitis)
- Daily and sports injuries affecting the knee, hip, shoulder, elbow, etc. including cartilage tears, ligament tears and tendon tears
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Osteoarthritis treatment
- Bone fragment or loose cartilage removal impacting joint function
- Rotator cuff tears
