The word Arthroscopy is a combination of two Greek words, “Arthro” means joint and “skopein” means to look. The meaning of Arthroscopy is to look within the joint.
In an Arthroscopy surgery, an orthopedic doctor makes a small cleft in the patient’s skin and then insert a small sized instrument that contain a lighting system to magnify and illuminate the structures inside the joint and a small lens.
Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive operation process in which an examination and sometimes surgical treatment of damage of the interior of a joint is performed using a type of endoscope. This surgery is performed to treat many orthopedic conditions like torn surface cartilage, torn floating cartilage, trimming damaged cartilage, ALC reconstruction.
The benefits of arthroscopy surgery are given below:
- Minimal invasive: compared with the open surgery, an Arthroscopy surgery is remarkable less invasive. This surgery is performed through a series of small arthroscopic processes; small injections typically result in less post –operative scarring and pain.
- Shorter recovery time: since an Arthroscopy surgery reduce the need to cut through your tendons and muscles, patients of arthroscopic surgery often enjoy a shorter recovery time. That means getting back to your daily routine life quickly.
- Less surgical risk: this surgery is less surgical risk because it is a minimal invasive, that’s why the surgical risk is typically lower.
