Arthroscopic Surgery

Arthroscopy involves use of a specialized camera system to evaluate and treat problems within a joint. Because it often only requires small 1cm or smaller incisions, use of arthroscopy may allow a more minimally invasive way to treat injuries. Arthroscopy can be performed on the shoulder, elbow, hip, and knee. Many conditions involving these joints can be treated. Some, but not all, are listed below.

Shoulder

  1. Labral tears
  2. Shoulder instability
  3. Rotator cuff tears

Elbow

  1. Synovitis
  2. OCD (osteochondritis dissecans)
  3. Fractures
  4. Loose body removal
  5. Lateral epicondylitis
  6. Osteoarthritis

Hip

  1. Hip impingement (FAI)
  2. Labral tears

Knee

  1. ACL injuries
  2. PCL injuries
