Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that involves the use of a special instrument known as an arthroscope to detect, examine, and treat various problems related to the joints. It is used to repair and reconstruct torn ligaments and tendons of the knee and shoulder The surgery ensures short recovery period and an extremely high success rate. Unlike the traditional surgery, where the affected area is completely exposed, Arthroscopy is carried out with the help of a very small camera that helps to generate live images of the affected joint on a huge screen.
We also perform arthroscopy to investigate symptoms such as pain, swelling, or instability of a joint. Arthroscopy may show damage to cartilage or ligaments within a joint, fragments of bone or cartilage which have broken off ('loose bodies'), or signs of arthritis.
We are treating various problems using the latest arthroscopic procedures for Intra-articular disorders of various types, Joint damage caused by an injury or an underlying medical condition, Persistent pain and swelling, Stiffness that leads to utter discomfort, Mild injuries related to the joint, Ligament Tears etc
Some of the major conditions that are treated under Arthroscopy are -
- Inflammation in the smooth lining of the joint in the shoulder, elbow, wrist, knee, or ankle.
- Injuries such as Rotator cuff tendon tears, Meniscal (cartilage) tears, Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears (causing instability in the knee), Carpal tunnel syndrome in the wrist, Impingement syndrome (shoulder condition), Recurrent dislocations in the shoulder, Chondromalacia (injury or wearing of the cartilage cushion)
- Pieces of loose bone and/or cartilage (particularly in the shoulder, elbow, wrist, knee, or ankle)
