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. It is typically suggested if you have inflammation in a joint or damage a joint. It can be done in any joint such as the elbow, knee, shoulder, ankle, hip, or wrist.

During the physical examination, the doctor will check the swelling in the knee. The doctor may also ask you to change the 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 the dressing. The doctor will advise you of necessary post-operative tips and medications for recovery.

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 an 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 clearly visualize the internal parts of the knee. Benefits of knee arthroscopy surgery include-
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.
