We use arthroscopic surgery to examine and treat the interior of a joint. Our surgeons at Goshen Physicians Orthopedics & Sports Medicine perform this minimally invasive procedure with an arthroscope, a type of endoscope that is inserted into the joint through a small incision.
In general, we use arthroscopic techniques to evaluate or treat orthopedic conditions, including torn or damaged cartilage. Arthroscopic surgery also gives us less invasive ways to perform ACL reconstruction.
Surgical instruments used in arthroscopic surgery are smaller than traditional instruments. Surgeons view the joint area on a video monitor to diagnose and repair torn joint tissue. Joints most commonly examined and treated by arthroscopy are knees, ankles, feet, hips, shoulders, elbows and wrists.
