Minimal Invasive Ortho Surg
Arthroscopic Surgery is the modern advanced method of surgery of the joints. It involves use of an Arthroscope, which is a thin telescope to which is attached a small video camera. Once the arthroscope is inserted in a joint, the structures within the joint can be visualised on the TV monitor as a highly illuminated and magnified view showing the normal and abnormal structures very clearly. The doctor can see the structures in the joint and diagnose the problem. Depending upon the problem, correctable surgery can be performed at the same time through specialised instruments. Some of these problems if left untreated, may lead to arthritis.
Arthroscopy is useful in disorders of knee, ankle, shoulder, wrist and elbow joints. Mostly it is done for joint injuries in sports persons. It is minimally invasive and even complex procedures like cruciate reconstruction in the kneecan be done arthroscopically. Mostly it is a day-care procedure where the patient goes home the same day. Leaves no scar, minimal post-operative pain & early return to work. Like all minimally invasive surgeries, special instruments and special training is needed.
