About Arthroscopy

Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure that orthopedic surgeons use to diagnose and treat problems inside a joint. The diagnosis is done by using a tube-like viewing instrument which is known as an arthroscope. Arthroscopy is typically suggested if you have inflammation in a joint or damaged a joint. Arthroscopy can be done in any joints such as elbow, knee, shoulder, ankle, hip or wrist.

Diagnosis

During the physical examination, the doctor will check the swelling in the knee. The doctor may also ask you to change positions of the knee to check if the knee is functioning properly. The diagnosis, in most cases, can be done on the basis of the physical test alone, but if the injury looks severe, the doctor may ask you to take a few more tests such as – X-rays, MRI, and ultrasound.

Arthroscopy surgery is much easier in comparison to ‘open’ surgery. Before the surgery, the patient will be given a general, local, or spinal anesthetic. The use of anesthetic varies on the basis of the joint problem. During the surgery, an incision of that of a size buttonhole will be made through which the arthroscope will be inserted. The doctor might make several other incisions to examine various other parts of the joint. To treat the injury, specially designed instruments are inserted through minute incisions to the joint. After the surgery, the incisions are covered through dressing. The doctor will advise you necessary post-operative tips and medications for recovery.

When is knee arthroscopy used?

Knee arthroscopy can be used to treat the following knee conditions-

  • Osteoarthritis of the knees- Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint condition that arises due to wear and tear in the knee joint. Age and natural wear and tear are not the only causes for osteoarthritis of the knees, it can develop due to a meniscal tear caused by an injury. Knee arthroscopy is useful for the treatment of osteoarthritis and can help reduce pain and improve functioning of the knee.
  • ACL tears- Knee arthroscopy can be performed to treat torn or ruptured ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) that cannot heal on its own. ACL injuries are one of the most common injuries in high-impact sports.
  • Fractures- Arthroscopy is also used in some other cases such as in fractures in the knee bones. It is also useful in treating the cases where the patella is out of its position.

When is shoulder arthroscopy used?

Shoulder arthroscopy may be recommended for the following shoulder problems-

  • Torn or damaged ligaments or cartilage ring (labrum)
  • Shoulder instability, loose shoulder joint that slides around more than normal or gets dislocated
  • Torn or damaged biceps tendon
  • Torn rotator cuff
  • Inflammation or bone spur around the rotator cuff
  • Inflammation or damage in the lining of shoulder joint, often caused by degenerative joint disease, such as rheumatoid arthritis
  • Collarbone arthritis
  • Loose tissue that needs removal
  • Shoulder impingement syndrome

What happens during the arthroscopic procedure?

Arthroscopy is mostly conducted as an outpatient procedure. The type of anesthesia to be administered (local or general) is determined after examination of the patient’s overall health. The surgeon makes a minor incision on the joint that is to be examined. After the incision, the surgeon may need a pump for pushing a saline solution into the affected area to be operated on. The saline solution makes the joint expand in size. The expansion in size allows the surgeon to easily conduct the surgery and fit in the graft/implant (according to the need). Further, the arthroscope is inserted through the incision.

Surgical tools are inserted through other minor incisions if arthroscopy is performed as surgical treatment. The tools are used for removing, cutting, and sewing during the surgical repair of the joint. As the arthroscopic procedure completes, the surgeon removes the arthroscope and the tools and closes the minor incisions with the sutures. A proper sterile dressing is used to bandage the site of the incision to keep away the chances of infection.

Why do orthopedic surgeons prefer knee arthroscopy over traditional knee surgery?

Advanced arthroscopy requires minimal incision and is followed by a quick recovery. The arthroscope is a thin camera fitted device that helps the surgeon in clearly visualizing the internal parts of the knee. Benefits of knee arthroscopy surgery include-

  • Lower chances of infection due to minor incisions
  • Lesser incisions and minimal damage to the nearby tissues
  • Minimal blood loss
  • Painless surgery (performed with anesthesia)
  • Very less postoperative pain and downtime
  • Faster and smoother recovery with assisted physiotherapy
  • Shorter hospital stay (mostly outpatient procedure)
  • Return to sports and other regular activities within few months

Although arthroscopy is a safer choice than the standard open approach, there are some risks. Hence, it is important to choose a highly skilled and experienced orthopedic surgeon.
