Joint arthroscopy for joint health: Arthroscopy is the process of imaging the inside of the joint with a camera. Using a special camera with a diameter of 1.2-7 mm depending on the size of the joint, the surgeon can diagnose diseases while imaging the joint and intervene by planning the treatment at the same time.

Today, with the development of optical systems, by using high resolution cameras, images that are almost close to seeing with the naked eye can be obtained. With such clear images, many situations that cannot be diagnosed by radiological imaging methods can be revealed.

 

Another advantage of arthroscopy is that it is not an alternative to open surgical methods and in most cases it is the only option without an alternative. For example, with hip arthroscopy, it is possible to correct the joint incompatible with arthroscopy and the patient to return to work the next day. Since the same procedure involves great risks with open surgery, it is almost never applied.

Arthroscopy in large joints has taken its place in the treatment as the gold standard. Shoulder, elbow, hip and ankle; In the large joint class, the camera system is almost always intervened and successful treatments are widely applied.

Joint Arthroscopy “Arthroscopy for Joint Health”

Since thin and special camera systems are required for arthroscopy of the wrist, foot and finger joints, middle foot joints in small joints, it can be applied in a limited number of centers.

Arthroscopic intervention is possible in the spine and disc area. This intervention, formerly called “arthroscopic discectomy”, has been described as “endoscopic discectomy”. Disc problems between the vertebrae can be solved by imaging them with a camera even under local anesthesia.

Since the areas that arthroscopy can reach and view are very difficult to reach with open surgery, it is not difficult to predict that many surgical methods will be performed arthroscopically in the future.

The materials we use for the repair of structures that have been injured and lost their integrity in joint surgery are engineering marvels and complex operations can be performed with a single move.

In joint surgery, cartilage repairs, meniscus repairs, ligament repairs, foreign body removal and cellular treatments have all become possible only with arthroscopic treatment.

I wish you a healthy and pain-free life, emphasizing that any formations that cause stuck on the joint surface must be treated.

It is our freedom of movement!
