What Is Arthroscopy?
Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure. Therefore it means there is use for only tiny incisions. It mainly diagnoses and treats conditions that usually affect the joints.
Orthopedic surgeons use arthroscopy in diagnosing and treating joint problems. The scope typically has a structured system of lenses, a light for viewing, and a small video camera. The camera is supposed to be connected to video screens so that the surgeon can see a joint through a minimal incision. In addition, the arthroscope is often used along with other tools during another incision.
Arthroscopy is often used on the knee and in other joints such as the shoulder and elbow.
There may be other various risks depending on your overall health as an individual. Before the procedure, discuss your concerns with your doctor.
What Happens During Arthroscopy?
Arthroscopy could be done on an outpatient basis; or even as part of the routine while you stay in hospital. The procedures vary depending on your condition and your surgeon’s practices. The assigned surgeon may do it while you’re asleep under general anesthesia. Your overall health determines the anesthesia that will be administered. Your anesthesiologist should talk to you before the procedure.
