 Minimally Invasive Arthroscope Surgery

Over the past few decades, minimally invasive surgery has become increasingly common across all medical specialties and also in the orthopedics field. New research and technologies have led to improved methods of joint replacement, arthroscopic repairs of sports injuries and microscopic treatment of complex musculoskeletal conditions, among others.

Some orthopedic practices are known only for their patient care and results outcomes, while there are others which are known for their innovation. This surgery is outcome of the latter.

Minimally invasive surgery is exactly what it sounds like. Traditional surgery often requires a large incision and significant trauma to soft tissue surrounding an injury, minimally invasive surgery attempts to minimize both the size of surgical incisions while achieving the same surgical goal. In orthopedics, this can mean the difference between exposing the entire joint through a large, open incision and using small, targeted incisions to address only the specific problem area. This results in less risk during surgery, less post-operative pain and shorter recovery times. This is achieved usually with the help of an arthroscope, which has a camera mounted on a thin, flexible tube to visualize the interior of the joint and this tool called an arthroscope.

Some of the latest minimally invasive orthopedic surgery options:

Knee Arthoscopy, which is usually used for:

  • ACL tear reconstruction
  • Meniscal tear repair or trimming
  • Loose body removal
  • Removal of inflamed synovium

Shoulder Arthroscopy:

  • Rotator cuff repair
  • Bone spur removal
  • Shoulder instability repair
  • Labral repair or removal
  • Removal of inflamed tissue

Wrist Arthroscopy, it is widely used for carpal tunnel release procedure but can also be used effectively for:

  • Fracture repair
  • Ligament/TFCC tear repair
  • Diagnosing or treating chronic wrist pain
