Arthroscopy is a minimally-invasive diagnostic and treatment procedure used for conditions of a joint. Originally, arthroscopy was a diagnostic tool only, used primarily for planning a standard open surgery. However, because of the development of new instruments and advanced surgical techniques, many conditions can also be treated with arthroscopic surgery.

Conditions most frequently discovered during arthroscopy:

  • inflammation
  • rotator cuff tendon tears, impingement syndrome, and recurrent dislocations
  • pieces of loose bone and/or cartilage
