Arthroscopic surgeries are procedures done to diagnose as well as treat the cartilage, ligaments, and tendons inside a joint using an arthroscope. This is accomplished with the aid of a small camera inserted into the joint through tiny incisions using an arthroscope. The procedure is a minimally invasive technique performed by surgeons who have specialized training in arthroscopic techniques.
If you have joint pain or stiffness for more than two weeks, or if you injured a joint, talk to your doctor about what you can do. You can have arthroscopy on any joint. Most often, doctors recommend it for the knee, shoulder, elbow, ankle, hip, or wrist.
There are numerous reasons why arthroscopic surgery is performed. Some of the most common include repair of a meniscus tear, a rotator cuff tear, and cartilage damage (e.g., chondral arthropathy). Below is the list of some of the most common procedures that may benefit from arthroscopic surgery.
    • Shoulder arthroscopy
    • Knee arthroscopy
    • Ankle arthroscopy
    • Hip arthroscopy
    • Elbow arthroscopy
Arthroscopic surgical procedure is a minimally invasive surgical procedure performed under general or local anaesthesia on small and large joints, such as the knees, shoulders, elbow and wrist. A camera attached to the tip of an arthroscope, which is inserted into the joint, allows the surgeon to view the structures inside. The damage structures are repaired with tiny instruments inserted through separate small incisions
Following arthroscopy surgery, your doctor will provide you with specific instructions regarding your post-operative care. When a surgeon performs arthroscopic surgery, patients typically stay in the hospital for 1 to 4 days and then another 1 to 2 weeks at home for recovery. During that time, your surgeon will give you instructions for proper care of your surgical incisions, pain medication and recommendations for physical therapy.
