Arthroscopy is not a surgery, but a surgical method that can be used in many different procedures to diagnose joint problems or treat acute and chronic joint diseases. Arthroscopy in West Delhi is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a camera to look inside the joint instead of opening it completely.

arthroscopy surgery in Delhi

The arthroscope is a pencil-sized surgical instrument with a camera projected onto an operating room monitor. The arthroscope is often used with other instruments that are inserted through another incision or incision.

The orthopaedic surgeon in Delhi inserts an arthroscope (a thin instrument with a camera attached) through one of several small incisions. A small incision (about the size of a loop) will be made to insert the arthroscope into the knee joint.

After the operation, the surgeon drains saline from the joint and sutures several small incisions. The surgeon usually injects novocaine into the knee during surgery to relieve pain after surgery. After surgery, patients should rest and elevate the joint and apply ice packs to reduce pain and swelling to speed up recovery time after knee arthroscopy.

With arthroscopy, the surgeon reconstructs the most common knee using surgical techniques such as suturing, inserting pins or rivets, or repositioning the bones. Orthopedic surgeons use arthroscopy to diagnose, treat, and repair numerous conditions and diseases that can cause joint pain or mobility problems.

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 the 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 a diagnosis can’t be made by conventional methods like history, examination, blood investigations, or even imaging including MRI then arthroscopy help to make a 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

–    DAYCARE  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.
