KNEE - SHOULDER ARTHROSCOPY
Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure performed by orthopedists to examine, diagnose and treat problems within a joint. Various diseases and injuries that can cause damage to bones, cartilage, ligaments, muscles and tendons are easy to diagnose and treat with arthroscopy.
Although almost all the joints can be articulated, mainly six are those examined through this method. These joints are the hip, knee, ankle, shoulder, elbow, and penis cartilage. With advances in electronics and the development of new techniques, it is likely that arthroscopy will be extended to other joints in the future.
Initially, arthroscopy was simply a diagnostic tool for preparing open surgery. With the development of better equipment and the advancement of surgical techniques, more and more situations can be treated arthroscopically. The size of the surgery you need and the recovery period is directly dependent on the complexity of the joint problem.
