Arthroscopic joint surgery is minimally invasive, making the procedure safe and officiant so that you can get back to your regular activities as soon as possible.
Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure in which a surgeon can view and work inside a joint without having to make any large cuts in the area of the joint. During the surgery, the surgeon makes small incisions in the area around the joint, inserts a narrow tube attached to a fiber-optic camera, and then repairs the damage using thin surgical instruments. The incisions are very small in comparison to many other forms of surgeries, making the procedure minimally invasive.
A minimally invasive procedure like arthroscopy is easier on a patient since the procedure doesn’t cut any muscles or tendons. This makes the post-procedure period much easier on the patient.
After the procedure, patients are expected to be able to go home within a few hours!
