Surgical Services


Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure in which an examination and sometimes treatment of damage of the interior of a joint is performed. It is performed using an arthroscope, a type of rigid endoscope that is inserted into the joint through a small incision. Arthroscopy can be used to evaluate or treat many orthopedic conditions.
