What is Arthroscopy?

Arthroscopy is a medical procedure employed for addressing joint-related conditions. Originally, it was primarily used to plan traditional open surgeries. However, with advancements in surgical techniques and equipment, many joint conditions can now be effectively treated using arthroscopy.

What is an arthroscope?

An arthroscope is a small tube designed for insertion into the body. It comprises a system of lenses, a compact video camera, and a light source, enabling internal visual examination. The camera is connected to a monitoring system, enabling our skilled surgeons to observe the procedure in real-time. Typically, the arthroscope is used alongside other specialized tools inserted through separate incisions, which are employed for tasks such as grasping, cutting, and probing.
