Arthroscopy is the visualization of the joint with an optical device scope. While imaging the intra-articular structures, they are examined and radiologically unrecognizable cartilage problems, tears of intra-articular structures can be revealed. For example, peripheral detachment of the meniscus may be missed during MRI, but can be diagnosed by arthroscopy. MRI is sufficient for surface injuries of the cartilage tissue, and it can even be performed for diagnostic purposes in knee pain that does not undergo arthroscopy, despite normal MRI examination. 

My Approach

The main purpose of arthroscopy is to eliminate the cause revealed during diagnosis so that repair/reconstructive treatments are performed simultaneously. With advanced suture materials, patients with anterior cruciate ligament repair can be pressed the next day. Shoulder dislocations and rotator muscle repairs can immediately return to normal life. Tears in the elbow and wrist joints are repaired, and treatment-resistant conditions such as tennis elbow can be corrected.


Compressions that occur as a result of ankle sprains, snagging in the hip bone can be eliminated and joint wear can be prevented. Open surgery techniques, as the gold standard in arthroscopic joint surgery, have largely been removed from our practice. Scope wound is 5-7 mm, the entire surgical procedure can be completed through 2-3 holes, surgical wound care is almost not required, and the bleeding is very low, so the healing is very fast. Arthroscopic methods have contributed to the orientation of modern surgery to minimally invasive treatments.
