Meet our team and learn about minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery.

Arthroscopy (also called arthroscopic or minimally invasive surgery) is a minimally invasive surgical procedure on a joint in which an examination and treatment of damage is performed. This is done using an arthroscope, a small camera that is inserted into the joint through a small incision.

The advantage over traditional open surgery is that the joint does not have to be open to a large incision. This reduces morbidity or damage, risk of complications, and recovery time. There is also less scarring associated with arthroscopic surgery.

Surgical instruments are smaller than traditional instruments. The surgeon views the joint area on a high definition video monitor, and can diagnose and repair injured or torn tissue. Irrigation fluid, most commonly normal saline, is used to distend the joint to create a surgical space.  It is technically possible to do an arthroscopic examination of almost every joint, but it is most commonly used for the knee, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, and ankle.

Additional training in arthroscopic surgery is traditionally achieved through an Orthopedic Sports Medicine Fellowship. This is done after the completion of an Orthopedic Surgery Residency. The fellowship offers additional sub-specialized training.  Sports Medicine fellowship trained physicians also specialize in the care of athletes, and ranges from recreational to elite level professional athletes.
