What is an Arthroscope?

An arthroscope is a small surgical instrument that is used to penetrate the skin and tiny cameras can be inserted through it. It can be used to either diagnose or treat a problem.

Your surgeon will insert the arthroscope and it will help them to the view inside a joint. The image of the inside of the joint will be transmitted to a video monitor for the doctor to look at. It can be a great help in diagnosing a problem.

The arthroscope can also be used to insert other small surgical instruments into the area to make repairs.

Arthoscopy is not as invasive as traditional surgery, so if an issue can be fixed with an arthroscope instead of with traditional surgery, you will have a smaller risk of infection and a considerably quicker recovery period after the procedure.

Arthoscopy can be used to diagnose/treat various foot and ankle problems, including arthritis, injuries, such as foot or ankle fractures, sprains, ligament injuries, and plantar fasciitis.
