Arthroscopy

Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure on a joint in which an examination or treatment of damage is performed using an arthroscope, an endoscope that is inserted into the joint through a small incision.

What is arthroscopy?

For certain conditions, an arthroscopic repair is better and easier to perform, with less soft-tissue dissection, minimum time for recovery and much smaller incisions, than performing an “open procedure” surgery to address the problem. Arthroscopic surgery has gone from being an advantage of less invasive surgery to the standard of care for many types of joint surgery. Most commonly performed on the knee and the shoulder, arthroscopic surgery can also be performed on just about any other joint in the body. This type of surgery does not have many complications and patients should not worry if they have a professional orthopedic team supporting them. Advances in medical technology and arthroscopic techniques have allowed more procedures to be performed arthroscopically.

• The decision should be made by doctor and patient both

Exact preparations depend on which of the joints the surgeon is examining or repairing. Smoking should be stopped few weeks before and after the surgery. Smoking will slow down the healing process. Patients should stop taking Aspirin, anti-inflammatory medicines and herbal supplements before the surgery, since these medicines increase the risk of bleeding. They should not eat or drink after midnight the night before the surgery. Patients should wear loose, comfortable clothing.
