Arthroscopy Procedures at Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic in Louisville, KY
An arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that may be performed to diagnose or treat a wide variety of joint conditions. At Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic, our renowned surgeons perform arthroscopies for patients in Louisville, Kentucky, using the latest advances in care. We encourage you to visit our independently owned practice and learn about your nonsurgical or minimally invasive treatment options if you are experiencing disruptive joint pain.
An arthroscopy involves the use of an arthroscope, a thin instrument with a small camera attached to the end that allows surgeons to view the inside of the joint without making long incisions. It may be used as a diagnostic tool if X-rays and other imaging techniques fail to answer questions regarding a patient’s condition. When utilized with other minimally invasive techniques, an arthroscopy may also be used to treat:
- Torn cartilage
- Joint infections
- Loose bone or cartilage fragments
- Inflamed joint linings
- Torn ligaments
- Excess scar tissue
Compared to traditional open joint surgeries, arthroscopy procedures are generally associated with less scarring, fewer complications and shorter recovery periods.
