Minimally Invasive Arthroscopy

Our skilled surgeons offer minimally invasive surgical options to treat many orthopedic conditions. Why minimally invasive? To reduce scarring, shorten recovery and reduce your pain.


The American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons defines arthroscopy as a surgical procedure orthopedic surgeons use to visualize, diagnose and treat problems such as inflammation, rotator cuff tendon tears; shoulder impingement syndrome; meniscal (cartilage) tears; ACL tears; carpal tunnel syndrome; or loose bones or cartilage in the knee, shoulder, elbow, ankle or wrist.

In arthroscopy, surgeons attach a mini-tv camera to see the inside of a joint. Pencil-sized instruments are inserted through a small incision. The instruments have a small lens and lighting system to magnify the structures inside the joint.
