Arthroscopic surgery, also known as arthroscopy, is a minimally invasive procedure used to diagnose and treat injuries and problems in the joints. Orthopedic arthroscopy is a common procedure used to treat a variety of conditions affecting the knee, shoulder, elbow, ankle, and wrist.

The procedure is performed using a tube with a small camera called an arthroscope, which is inserted into the joint through a small incision. The camera allows the surgeon to see the inside of the joint and any damage or abnormalities. The surgeon can then use small instruments to make repairs or remove damaged tissue.

One of the main benefits of arthroscopic surgery is that it is minimally invasive. This means that the incisions are smaller than those used in traditional open surgery. As a result, patients experience less pain and scarring, and have a faster recovery time than traditional open surgeries.

Arthroscopic surgery can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including:

  • Osteoarthritis: a degenerative joint disease that causes pain and stiffness in the joints
  • Menisus tears: a common knee injury that occurs when the cartilage in the knee is torn
  • Rotator cuff tears: a common shoulder injury that occurs when the tendons or muscles in the shoulder are torn
  • Loose bodies: small pieces of bone or cartilage that can become lodged in a joint

The procedure is typically done on an outpatient basis, meaning patients are able to go home the same day. Recovery time varies depending on the specific condition being treated and the type of procedure performed. Physical therapy is often recommended to help patients regain strength and mobility in the affected joint.

Orthopedic arthroscopic surgery is a safe and effective option for treating all kinds of joint pain and injuries. It offers many benefits over traditional open surgery, including less pain, scarring, and recovery time.
