Joint Arthroscopy

Joint arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure used by orthopedic surgeons to diagnose, evaluate and treat a variety of conditions affecting the body’s joints – particularly but not exclusively the knee, shoulder, elbow, hip, wrist and ankle joints. It is performed via a small incision through which an arthroscope with a tiny camera and light are passed. This allows the surgeon to adequately visualize cartilage, ligaments and the spaces within the joint to better determine the cause of a patient’s pain. Some of the many conditions diagnosed via joint arthroscopy include synovitis (inflammation), rotator cuff tears, impingement syndrome, meniscal tears, loose bone or cartilage, torn ligaments including ACL tears, carpal tunnel syndrome, and recurrent dislocations.
