Arthroscopy - Knee & Shoulder

To ascertain the extent of damage as well diagnose and treat problems within the joint, a surgical procedure is used, which is known as Arthroscopy.

In theory the procedure is simple - a small, approximately 5 mm in diameter, fibre optic arthroscope is inserted into a problematic joint through a small incision in the skin. The arthroscope consists of a small camera mounted at the tip of a narrow tube. The tube also contains a light source and hence, the procedure can be viewed on a monitor by the surgeons.

This procedure helps the surgeons in identifying the damaged tissue present in the bones and deciding the next appropriate course of action. The most common type of arthroscopic surgery include removal of loose debris, trimming of damaged cartilage, removal or repair of a torn meniscus, and ligament reconstruction.
