What is Arthroscopy Surgery?

Arthroscopy, also termed as arthroscopic surgery, is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used by surgeons to examine, diagnose, view and treat wear and tear and traumatic injuries related to the interior of a joint. This procedure is performed using an arthroscope, which is inserted into the joint through a small incision in the patient’s skin. Arthroscopic procedures are usually carried out either to examine and treat many joints of our body like the shoulder joint, knee joint, and smaller joints like the elbow and ankle joints. The hip joint is not commonly treated with arthroscopy.

The main advantage of arthroscopy is that the joint is not completely opened like in ‘open surgery’. This reduces chances of infection, bleeding and hastens recovery. Two small incisions are made to insert the arthroscope and small surgical instruments. The joints are inflated using irrigation fluid to make surgical space. Arthroscopic Surgeons observe the joint area on a video monitor to diagnose the extent of injury and then repair torn joint tissue, such as ligaments and menisci or cartilage.

Arthroscopy is commonly used for joints of the knee, shoulder, elbow, wrist, ankle, foot, and hip. Conditions treated are:

  • Torn floating cartilage
  • torn surface cartilage
  • ACL reconstruction
  • Trimming damaged cartilage
  • Treatment for conditions broadly called ‘frozen shoulder’
  • Rotator cuff tear injuries in the shoulder

And many more.

Sports Injuries

Injuries routinely suffered by athletes in professional sports are called Sports Injuries.

Traumatic or overuse sporting injuries are a result of contact sports such as Football, Cricket, Tennis, Rugby,Kabbadi, Kho-Kho. Contact Sports result in bruises, muscle strains, fractures and head injuries.

  • Bruise or contusion is damage to small blood vessels which causes minor internal bleeding.
  • Muscle strain is a small tear of muscle fibres.
  • Ligament sprain is a small tear of ligament tissue.

Signs and Symptoms

The body responds to all injuries with inflammation, that is characterized by pain, localized swelling, heat, redness and loss of joint function.

The inflammatory stage is the first phase of healing. However, too much of an inflammatory response in the early stage can mean that the healing process would be longer and returning back to normalcy is delayed. The sports injury treatments accelerate the overall healing process by minimizing the inflammatory phase of an injury.

Arthroscopy is the best treatment for professional athletes who suffer from recurrent injuries of the shoulder or knee joints and need to get better soon and resume their sport.
