Arthroscopy is a diagnostic and therapeutic procedure during which a camera is inserted through a small incision into a joint. The surgeon is then able to see the inside of the joint and identify the type and extent of an injury. The surgeon can also treat the injury through the same small incision. The entire treatment is performed through small stab wounds and can be used for a number of procedures that address bursitis, spurs, arthritis, rotator cuff tears, biceps tendon ruptures, ligament tears, ganglions and degenerative conditions.
It is a minimally invasive technique performed through small holes, rather than a large opening in the skin. Procedures using arthroscopy have a smaller chance of infection.
