What is Arthroscopic Surgery?
Arthroscopic surgery is a simple, yet advanced, surgical procedure typically resulting in less down time for the patient. Our orthopedic surgeon makes a small incision and inserts a narrow tube with a camera attached to the tube, allowing him to see, diagnose and treat the problem inside the joint.
Performance Orthopaedics Performs Arthroscopic Surgery

Arthroscopic surgery can be beneficial for injuries in the joint, as well as a variety of non-inflammatory and inflammatory types of arthritis. Injured areas may include include:
- Knee Injuries
- Shoulder Injuries
- Elbow Injuries
- Ankle Injuries
- Hip Injuries
Issues that can be Corrected with Arthroscopic Surgery
Because arthroscopy uses small incisions and a camera attached to a tube-like instrument, minimal surgery can be performed inside the joint. Common joint-related issues can be corrected with arthroscopic surgery. These can include:
- Torn Cartilage
- Torn Ligaments
- Loose Bone Fragments
- Scarring in the Joint
- Inflamed Lining of the Joint
Most arthroscopic surgeries are performed in an outpatient facility allowing the patient to return home quicker. Benefits include:
- Quicker Recovery Time
