What is Arthroscopy?
A pencil-sized telescope and camera is introduced into a joint enabling the surgeon to watch their movements on a monitor while operating through tiny incisions. This type of minimally-invasive surgery generally results in less scarring and disruption to the joint, outpatient "day surgery" without hospital stay-overs, and generally faster recovery.
