What is arthroscopy?

Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive orthopedic surgery performed for the diagnosis and treatment of joint related problems such a pain and swelling. It is usually performed to patients with long standing joint pains(arthritis ) when the surgeon wants to inspect the insides of a joint for diagnostic or therapeutic purpose.

It is usually performed for weight-bearing joints such as knee, shoulder, elbow, ankle, hip, and the wrist joint. For diagnosis, it is usually last option if physical examination or imaging tests are not able to determine the cause of pain . On the other hand, for treatment (therapeutic ) it is the most preferred surgical approach as it is minimally invasive as it provides quicker recovery with minimal complications.

When is arthroscopic surgery required?

Arthroscopy is usually performed for:

What happens during arthroscopy?

Once the diagnosis has been confirmed after through physical examination and going through all the tests , the orthopedic surgeon discusses various treatment options including arthroscopy with the patient. Based on the joint being operated and the type of surgery it is performed under either general anesthesia or regional anesthesia –

Once the anesthesia is given , the surgeon makes a tiny ( buttonhole) incision to insert the arthroscope into the joint and examines it thoroughly to look for any missed causes for pain , any fluid effusions , any injuries and repairs them accordingly . Once the surgery is completed, these small incisions may be sutured and dressing done .
