Best Arthroscopic Surgery in Delhi

The arthroscopy surgery in Delhi is a procedure that lets look at the inside of a joint in your body using a device called “arthroscope”. This equipment is a rod about the size of a straw with a camera on the end. Arthroscopy surgery in West Delhi allows the doctor to look directly at the structures within the joint, such as ligaments (resistant tissue that connects one bone to another), cartilage (smooth tissue that covers the ends of bones in the joints) and other structures. This procedure can be used both to diagnose and to repair a joint problem. Arthroscopy surgery in Dwarka is most commonly performed on the knee and shoulder. It can also be done on the hip, ankle, elbow and wrist.

During arthroscopy, the arthroscope is inserted into the joint through a small cut (incision) in the skin called the portal. The equipment is equipped with a light source and a video camera at its end. The images generated from the camera are viewed on a video monitor. The other surgical instruments are inserted into the joint through new portals. The entire procedure is performed with the surgeon looking at the monitor.

Unlike open surgeries, in which the orthopaedic doctor in Delhi needs to make a larger cut, arthroscopy is generally less painful and allows for faster recovery time.

Arthroscopy in Dwarka, Delhi may be used along with additional surgical techniques. For example, if the surgeon performs arthroscopy on a knee joint and determines that the ACL  has been torn, an ACL RECONSTRUCTION  may be added to the surgery.

One of the benefits of this minimally invasive approach is that this surgery is typically done on a DAYCARE basis, with the patient returning home the same day or next day. Recovery is usually quicker than with comparable procedures performed “open” with a much larger incision.

Why Is Arthroscopy surgery in Delhi Necessary?

FOR DIAGNOSIS ( DIAGNOSTIC ) – If diagnosis cant be made by conventional methods like history, examination, blood investigations or even imaging including MRI than arthroscopy help to make diagnosis n sometimes simultaneously treat it also. we can take BIOPSY / SYNOVIAL FLUID FOR EXAMINATION / PHOTOGRAPH THE DAMAGE  basically actually seeing inside the joint.

FOR TREATMENT ( THERAPEUTIC) –  to treat the joint disorders, as  arthroscopy is evolving its indication are increasing day by day  with multiple benefits over convention surgical methods like

–    DAY CARE  PROCEDURE – Lesser hospital stay.

–    FASTER REHAB – as small incision and lesser tissue damage causes less pain and early rehabilitation.

–     BETTER RESULTS – as anatomy is restored easily n without damaging much, results are much better.

–    NO/LESS BLOOD LOSS
