How do we do it?
An arthroscope is a small tube with a system of lenses, a small video camera and a viewing light. The camera connects to a monitoring system that allows surgeons to view the operation while they’re performing it. By using an arthroscope and small surgical instruments, the surgeon can diagnose the condition and repair the joint by making only 1/4-inch incisions.
This new technology makes shoulder arthroscopy, knee arthroscopy, hip arthroscopy and ankle arthroscopy possible.
