World Class Arthroscopy and Ligament Surgery

World Class Arthroscopy and Ligament Surgery

Arthroscopy is also known as keyhole surgery. It is a surgical procedure which is minimally invasive and involves examination and or the treatment of the damage caused to a joint performed with an arthroscope. This surgical procedure is particularly advantageous because the joint does not have to be opened up completely. It works with just a few small incisions.  Arthroscopy has a reputation of a faster pace of recovery, high rate of success, fewer traumas to the connective tissue and reduced post-operative pain. When you need to treat your ligament tears, joint injuries or tendon damage your doctor at Orthocare will advise you an arthroscopic procedure. Some of the conditions that Arthroscopy treats include damaged cartilage, reconstruction of ACI, torn floating cartilage, ligament strains, and tears, cartilage deterioration underneath the kneecap and surface cartilage.  Arthroscopy is considered in orthopedic conditions such as inflammatory, non-inflammatory arthritis, infections, and injuries. Some of the significant Arthroscopy and ligament surgery procedures are specified below.
