A comprehensive diagnostic process is employed using the latest imaging technology to identify the problem. When surgery is required, many procedures can be performed arthroscopically and performed on an outpatient basis.


  • During arthroscopy, a small camera called an arthroscope is inserted into a joint through a small incision in the skin. Viewing magnified images, the surgeon is able to look at the joint surfaces and the surrounding soft tissues such as the ligaments and cartilage. Arthroscopy can be used to diagnose or repair a joint problem, remove a loose or foreign body, or monitor a disease or the effectiveness of a treatment. Arthroscopy is commonly performed on the knee, shoulder, and ankle and can also be done on the hip, elbow, and wrist.
  • Because it is minimally invasive, arthroscopic surgery offers patients many benefits, including smaller incisions, less scaring, no cutting of muscles or tendons and less bleeding during surgery, ultimately leading to a more comfortable rehabilitation and faster recovery.
