Session: Arthroscopy



Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure to visualize, diagnose, and treat problems inside a joint. It is an operating procedure in which a tube-like instrument called arthroscope, a type of endoscope is inserted into a joint to view, diagnose, and to repair the damaged tissues. Due to the technological developments the components of arthroscopes have steadily improved and now provide very high definition digital images. This enables them to provide for accurate diagnosis and surgical treatment of knee and joint problems. Mostly arthroscopy surgeries are performed to examine and to treat orthopaedic injuries including torn cartilage, ACL reconstruction, to trim the damaged cartilage and to correct of deformities. This surgery provide less tissue trauma, may result in less pain, and may promote a quicker recovery.
