Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally-invasive technique used by orthopedic
surgeons to diagnose and treat joint problems. Through a small incision,
the surgeon inserts a narrow tube attached to a fiber-optic camera and
lighting system to view the inside of joints. This allows surgeons to
easily diagnose and treat the joint injury without extensive surgery and
recovery. With direct access to joints, orthopedic surgeons are able to
easily correct a number of joint issues such as ligament tears and arthritis.
Pain following the procedure is minimal and often times, patients are
back to resuming daily activities within a few days.
