Arthroscopy Surgery

Arthroscopy Surgery

Arthroscopy can help resolve joint disorders that havent responded to many conservative methods to help you get rid of chronic discomfort.

It is a procedure for diagnosing and treating joint problems. A surgeon inserts a narrow tube attached to a fiber-optic video camera through a small incision — about the size of a buttonhole. The view inside your joint is transmitted to a high-definition video monitor.


Why it's Done

Doctors use arthroscopy to help diagnose and treat a variety of joint conditions, most commonly those affecting the:

  • Knee
  • Shoulder
  • Elbow
  • Ankle
  • Hip
  • Wrist

Conditions Treated With Arthroscopy Include:

  • Loose bone fragments
  • Damaged or torn cartilage
  • Inflamed joint linings
  • Torn ligaments
  • Scarring within joints


What Happens During Arthroscopic Surgery?

Each procedure will vary. But, generally. arthroscopic surgery follows this process. Initially, you will receive a general, local, or spinal anesthetic. A small incision is made in your skin. Your doctor will insert an arthroscope through the incision. Other incisions may be made to introduce another small grasping, probing, or cutting tool. Light is transmitted via fiber optics at the end of the arthroscope. This will transmit the information about the interior of the joint to a screen. If needed, corrective surgery may be done during the initial diagnostic procedure. Once the surgery is completed, dressings or bandages may be put on the incisions. The small puncture wounds created by the arthroscope and probing tools may take several days to weeks to heal.

I was admitted at United Hospital for about 3 days. Right from admission formalities, the rooms and the overall facilities, I was cared for. The doctors, especially Dr. Raghavendra Prakash and Dr. Navya were excellent. They were very calm, patiently answered my trivial questions without hesitation and made it a point to explain every course of treatment that I was undergoing. The support staff deserves a mention. They were equally supportive in making my hospital stay as comfortable as possible. It’s a great hospital. Congratulations United Hospital…keep up the great work and commitment in serving the patients as always!
