Arthroscopic Joint Surgery

Arthroscopic surgery is one of the ways Trinity Health Orthopedic specialists are able to better diagnose and treat joint injuries and joint diseases that can damage a patient’s joints. Patients in need of arthroscopic joint surgery may suffer from inflammation in the lining of the knee, shoulder, elbow, wrist, or ankle. Other reasons may include: a rotator cuff tendon tear, recurrent dislocations, cartilage tears, carpal tunnel syndrome or loose bone fragments or cartilage.

While less invasive than what is referred to as “open” surgery, patient’s undergoing arthroscopic surgery still require the use of anesthetics and special equipment within a hospital operating room. A small incision, about the size of a button, is made to insert the surgical device that allows doctors to diagnose and treat the joint problems.

While recovery times vary depending on each patient’s situation, individuals who undergo arthroscopic treatment generally report minimal pain following surgery and are often able to resume normal daily activities within a few days. Typically it will take several weeks for the joint to completely recover.
