Arthroscopy of the Knees, Hip, and Ankles


Knee arthroscopy is also a minimally invasive surgical procedure that is used to examine and repair damage to a joint, in this case the knee. Physicians use an arthroscope to capture images of the inside of the knee joint without having to completely expose the tissues. This allows the surgeon to examine, diagnose, and treat knee disorders. ACL injuries and patella tendonitis are common injuries that can be treated with arthroscopy.


Hip arthroscopy is also performed by making just a few small incisions and inserting a camera attached to an arthroscope to view the inside of a joint. The surgeon performs the necessary repairs by inserting the necessary tools through two to three other small incisions. Like all arthroscopic procedures, hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that helps facilitate a successful recovery. Following surgery, patients work to regain motion around the joint and build strength.


Ankle arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to examine and repair damage to the ankle joint. A surgical tool called an arthroscope is inserted into the joint through a small incision. An arthroscope is a soft fiberoptic tube with a light and lenses on the end. The arthroscope allows physicians to view the inside of the damaged joint, so that they can repair the injury without having to completely expose the joint. Typically, patients who have this type of surgery can have it performed as an outpatient procedure to avoid a hospital stay. After the arthroscopy, they may have some pain and swelling for a few days.
