What is Arthroscopy?

We offer the minimally invasive procedure of arthroscopy performed by expert surgeons to correct joint problems. This procedure allows the surgeons to 'look within joints' with special tools to perform diagnostic or surgical procedures. It involves small incisions in the skin through which pencil-sized instruments containing a small lens and lighting system to illuminate and magnify images are inserted. The images are transmitted to a television screen. The surgeon gets a visual of the joint, which enhances diagnosis and treatment.

Arthroscopic surgery is performed under general or local anaesthesia with special instruments inserted through the small incisions. It is an outpatient procedure causing comparatively less pain. Recovery is quick and chances of infection minimal. Arthroscopic procedures are used to repair cartilage and meniscus problems, remove inflammation, repair rotator cuff tears and high resurfacing. 

Conditions Treated

  • Inflammation of the lining in the knee, shoulder, elbow, wrist, or ankle.

  • Shoulder: Rotator cuff tendon tears, impingement syndrome, and recurrent dislocations

  • Knee: Meniscal (cartilage) tears, chondromalacia (wearing or injury of cartilage cushion), and anterior cruciate ligament tears with instability

  • Wrist: Carpal tunnel syndrome

  • Loose bodies of bone and/or cartilage: for example, knee, shoulder, elbow, ankle, or wrist

  • Some problems associated with arthritis
