About Arthroscopy

Arthroscopy is a diagnostic procedure that is used by orthopedic surgeons 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 joint 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, a buttonhole size incision 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 of necessary post-operative tips and medications for recovery.

Why is knee arthroscopy performed?

Arthroscopic knee surgery may be carried out to treat certain types of knee pain. Arthroscopic surgery is a procedure that involves inserting a small camera inside the knee joint. Through the small incisions, the orthopedic surgeon will insert surgical instruments to repair or remove the damaged structures. Arthroscopic knee surgery is also called knee arthroscopy. Knee arthroscopy is typically carried out to treat problems with the menisci or osteoarthritis (the condition of wear and tear in the joint). In case you are experiencing meniscal problems, arthritis or osteoarthritis, arthroscopy can be performed to clear the debris from the joint or to trim the torn parts/ loose cartilage of the meniscus. This procedure can also be used to perform ACL reconstructions, treating fractures or infections of the knee, or to take a sample of the tissue from the knee joint.
