During Arthroscopic Surgery, the joint is examined by inserting an arthroscope – a thin tube containing a camera and light – through small incisions near the joint. The camera sends a close-up video image of the joint to a TV monitor, where our doctors can evaluate the joint and perform various repairs and reconstructions that were previously done through large incisions. Rotator cuff repairs, shoulder instability procedures, ACL reconstructions, and meniscus repairs are just a few examples of the many injuries treated through arthroscopic surgery.

By inserting the arthroscope through small incisions near the joint, surgeons gain a high-definition view of the joint’s internal structures. This enables them to identify and evaluate various pathologies, such as cartilage damage, ligament tears, and joint instability. The real-time video feed transmitted to a monitor allows for accurate assessment and precise diagnosis.
Arthroscopic surgery encompasses a wide range of therapeutic interventions, making it an invaluable tool in the treatment of joint-related issues. Surgeons can utilize specialized instruments inserted through additional small incisions to repair damaged tissues, reconstruct ligaments, remove loose bodies, and address conditions like meniscus tears, rotator cuff injuries, and ACL ruptures.
Arthroscopic surgery offers several notable benefits compared to traditional open surgery. Firstly, the smaller incisions result in reduced scarring, less postoperative pain, and a decreased risk of complications, such as infection. The shorter recovery period associated with arthroscopic procedures allows patients to resume their daily activities sooner and return to sports or physical activities with less downtime. Additionally, arthroscopic surgery is generally performed on an outpatient basis, eliminating the need for an extended hospital stay. These advantages contribute to an overall improved patient experience and satisfaction with the treatment process.
