Arthroscopic techniques have revolutionized surgery. The word arthroscopy comes from two Greek words, "arthro" (joint) and "skopein" (to look). The term literally means "to look within the joint". Arthroscopy allows orthopaedicsurgeons to make a tiny incision and look inside the joint, rather than the large, more invasive cuts once required. Historically the Orthopaedic surgeon had to cut through skin and tissue and dislocate the joint to get at problems in the joint, causing considerable damage in some cases.
Now, with just a tiny puncture wound, the orthopaedic surgeon can insert a pencil-sized optical device into the knee, hip, Elbow, Ankle, Wrist or shoulder joint. The image from the miniature television camera attached to the arthroscope is projected onto a large video monitor in the operating room, showing the surgeon exactly where to go to correct problems in the joint. Hip, Shoulder, Wrist, knee and Spinal are the few body parts which are rectified through arthroscopy.
Types of arthroscopy
- Knee arthroscopy
- Hip arthroscopy
- Ankle arthroscopy
All these procedures will be given a general, spinal, or a local anesthetic, depending on the joint or suspected problem. After the surgery, you will have an ace bandage on your knee over the dressing. Most people go home the same day they have surgery.
Risks involved in this surgery include:
Infection in the joint
Injury to a blood vessel or nerve
Damage to the cartilage, meniscus, or ligaments
