Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive diagnostic and surgical procedure performed for joint problems. Shoulder arthroscopy is performed using a pencil-sized instrument called an arthroscope. The arthroscope consists of a light system and camera to project images to a computer screen for your surgeon to view the surgical site. Arthroscopy is used to treat disease conditions and injuries involving the bones, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and muscles of the shoulder joint.
Knee arthroscopy is a type of minimally invasive ‘keyhole’ surgery used to investigate and treat pain and other problems with the knee. Sapna Healthcare Cenre offers knee arthroscopy by world-leading surgeons using the latest equipment, in the clinic’s state-of-the-art operating theatres.
Many procedures can be performed through the arthroscope. Your surgeon can remove any loose bony fragments, repair or trim torn and ragged areas of cartilage and reconstruct ruptured ligaments. Arthroscopy can ease pain, improve mobility and help you get back on your feet- whether you are walking, running..
Knee Arthroscopy Surgery includes the following –
- Repair of Meniscus
- Cartilage Repair
- Anterior & Posterior cruciate ligament repair
- Synovectomy of Knee
Hip Arthroscopy is known as Keyhole surgery of the hip joint, diagnostic arthroscopic hip surgery
Hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that’s used to look at, diagnose and treat a range of hip joint problems. Compared to open hip surgery, it usually results in less pain, shorter hospital stays and quicker recovery times.
Under an anaesthetic, a camera on the end of a telescope can be passed into the hip joint. The inside of the hip can be visualised, helping confirm a diagnosis. Damage inside the hip, such as loose bits of cartilage or cartilage tears can be treated
Shoulder arthroscopy is indicated to treat the following shoulder conditions when conservative treatment such as medication and therapy fails to relieve pain and disability:
- Shoulder Impingement: this occurs when the shoulder blade applies pressure on the underlying soft tissues when the arm is lifted
- Rotator cuff tear
- Frozen shoulder or stiffness of the shoulder joint
- Shoulder Instability this occurs when the head of the upper arm bone slips out of the socket of the shoulder blade’s glenoid cavity either due to injury or overuse
- Damaged cartilage or ligaments
- Bone spurs or bony projections
