Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat diseases and injuries of the joint. The surgeon uses a small camera or scope (arthroscope) and small tools to repair the joint through tiny incisions. Since the procedure involves smaller incisions than those with open surgery, healing and recovery are generally shorter.
Though arthroscopic surgery isn’t an option for every case where joint repair is needed, it is an appealing option for patients. Most report less pain, better healing, and fewer complications.
