Surgical Services


Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure using rigid endoscope (video camera) 2.5-5mm in diameter that is inserted into the joint through a small incision.  This allows for examination and treatment of joint damage such as removing bone fragments, repairing cartilage or flushing out infected cavities. Arthroscopy can be used to evaluate or treat many orthopedic conditions
