Arthroscopy or arthroscopic surgery:
Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive procedure in which examination and treatment of damage of the interior of a joint is performed using an arthroscope, a type of endoscope that is inserted into the joint through a small incision. Arthroscopic procedures may be performed either to evaluate or to treat many orthopedic conditions including torn floating cartilage, torn surface cartilage, ACL reconstruction, and trimming damaged cartilage.
Arthroscopy for Sports Injuries
Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive surgery that offers a lesser hospital stay and lessened trauma and faster recovery than open surgeries. Also, it is affordable and calls for lesser use of anesthesia during the surgery. Some of the arthroscopic procedures can be done as a day-care surgery. The patients can go back to work or sports with minimal rest in less time
Sportspersons will get great benefit from arthroscopic surgery because of the likelihood of injuring their joints while playing and faster recovery after surgery. This is because of no small part to lessened trauma to the connective tissues in the body when compared to traditional open surgery.
