What is Arthroscopy Treatment ?
Arthroscopy is the minimal invasive surgery in which an arthroscope(a big needle like instrument) & a small camera is inserted into the joint by a small skin incision, the images that the camera captures inside can be viewed on the computer screen while moving the arthroscope inside.
How is it Performed?
The Arthroscopy can be both Diagnostic as well as Curative.
Small incisions called as portals will be made and the arthroscope will be inserted through them.
As, the surgeon first determines what is wrong with the tissues inside (Diagnosis) and then,
clears or shaves off the scar tissues or the loose bodies or whatever is the cause of the pain of the patient (Treatment),
followed by the removal of arthroscope and the dressing followed by a bandage.
Two or more small incisions are made instead of a big one, as per the condition of the patient.
In what diseases it can be performed?
The indications for arthroscopy are numerous, some of them are listed below:
Loose fragments removal in the joints(knee, shoulder etc)
Meniscectomy (Meniscus Removal surgery)

Acute or Chronic Injuries to the joint

Synovial Biopsy (fluid from the joint is taken)
Removal of thickened scar tissue from inside the joint etc
