Arthroscopy Procedures Performed by Board-Certified Orthopedic Surgeons in New Albany, IN
An arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that involves the use of an arthroscope – a thin, pencil-like tool with a small camera attached to the end. Arthroscopies are often performed to diagnose or treat conditions within or around a joint. At Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic in New Albany, Indiana, our board-certified surgeons perform arthroscopy procedures using the latest surgical techniques.
One of the many advantages of arthroscopic surgery is its ability to provide clear, detailed views of a joint. During a procedure, a surgeon inserts an arthroscope into a joint through a small incision, then uses the arthroscope to send a live video stream to a monitor in the operating room. This allows the surgeon to more easily view the inside of the joint to diagnose injuries and diseases. Arthroscopy procedures may also be combined with traditional surgical techniques to treat conditions such as:
- Rotator cuff tears
- Torn ligaments
- Inflamed joint linings
- Cartilage tears
- Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears
Compared to traditional open surgeries, arthroscopy procedures typically require smaller incisions and shorter recovery periods.
