What is Arthroscopy?

Arthroscopy is the visualization of the joint with an optical device scope. While visualizing the intra-articular structures, they are examined and radiologically invisible cartilage problems and tears of intra-articular structures can be revealed.

For example, while peripheral separation of the meniscus can be missed during mri, it can be diagnosed on arthroscopy. Mri is proficient in surface injuries of cartilage tissue, and arthroscopy can be performed even for diagnostic purposes, despite normal Mri examination in knee pain that does not heal. The main purpose of arthroscopy is to eliminate the cause revealed during diagnosis, and repair / reconstructive treatments are performed simultaneously. With advanced suture materials, patients with anterior cruciate ligament repair can be pressed the next day.

Shoulder dislocations, rotator muscle repairs can return to normal life immediately. Tears in the elbow and wrist joints are repaired, and treatment-resistant conditions such as tennis elbow can be corrected. Compression caused by ankle sprain can be eliminated and joint wear can be prevented by removing stuck in the hip bone.

Open surgical techniques have largely been removed from our practice as the gold standard in arthroxopia joint surgery. Scope wound is 5-7 mm, completion of the entire surgical procedure through 2-3 holes, almost no need for surgical wound care, very little bleeding, ensures very rapid healing. It has been with the contribution of arthroscopic methods in the orientation of modern surgery to minimally invasive treatments.
