Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive outpatient surgical procedure that utilizes a small fiberoptic camera (the size of a pencil) in combination with like-sized surgical instruments to examine and repair a joint through small half inch incisions. It is commonly used in the knee, shoulder and ankle to make diagnoses; remove or repair tears; remove loose bodies; remove painful bursae and scar; stimulate cartilage healing; repair ligaments…

The benefit of arthroscopic surgery is it uses only two or three little incisions; it is done on an outpatient basis; there is minimal and manageable discomfort; and frequently, there is no immobilization after the procedure.
