What is Sports Injury and Arthroscopy Surgery?

This surgery is on the lines of an insertion of scope inside the body, which cures your injured part with minimal cut and provides excellent outcome.

An orthopaedic surgeon makes a small incision in the patient’s skin and then inserts a thin instrument that contains a small lens and lighting system which illuminates the structure of the joint with light being transmitted through the optic fibers. This allows the surgeon to thoroughly navigate and investigate the problem throughout the joint. 

In the 21st century where technology has taken place in the core of everyone’s life. An arthroscopy is an intervention that has changed the whole picture of orthopaedic surgeries.

Previously, all ligamentous and soft tissue related surgeries were open surgeries. Arthroscopy is a boon for it allows doctors to perform these surgeries with minimal incision (cut) and maximal positive outcome. Such interventions equip the patients to smoothly transit back to their routine lives.

Arthroscopic surgery can successfully treat many conditions, such as torn meniscus cartilage in the knee. However, certain problems (such as arthritis) tend to have a variable success rate. The scars from the procedure are tiny and unobtrusive. See your doctor if you experience signs of infection, including:

  • Red, inflamed or weepy incision sites
  • Unusual pain in the knee
  • Calf swelling despite elevation
