Arthroscopy

There are a variety of procedures that can be conducted using arthroscopic techniques. Arthroscopy uses a few small incisions to insert a small camera attached to a scope, called an arthroscope, which captures images of internal tissues and transmits the images back to large monitors in the operating room. This provides surgeons a complete view of the body’s tissues without having to make large open incisions; because of this, these procedures are considered minimally invasive. Arthroscopy can be used to diagnose and treat orthopaedic conditions affecting the shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, and ankle.
