arthroscopy

Procedure
Description
Conditions (7)
Arthroscopy is minimally invasive joint surgery, commonly used for the knee & shoulder, but also for the ankle, hip, wrist, elbow and other joints. A camera with a fiber optic cable is attached to a video screen placed thru a 1 cm incision and other instruments are introduced thru other small incisions to do the work required. The small incisions allow for quicker recovery than open surgery.

What will an arthroscopy entail?

Surgery w/ a camera

Rotator_cuff
Arthroscopic surgery involves using a camera to address problems in and around a joint, such as for knee meniscus tears, ACL tears in the knee, and rotator cuff tears in the shoulder, to name a few. The advantages of arthroscopic surgery are that it is minimally invasive (small incisions) and it allows for excellent visualization of the structures in and around the joint.

Is an ankle arthroscopy painful?

Not typically

Ankle_arthroscopy
Ankle arthroscopy is a less invasive way to treat or ascertain what your problem is. The recovery is much quicker than a full open surgery and is usually relatively painless post operatively. This will also depend on the extend of what will need to be repaired.

Dr. Allen P. Lu answered:

how painful is a hip arthroscopy?

Depends

Arthroscopy
The hip arthroscopy is still young. Depending on the expertise of your surgeon, and the amount of work to be done, the hip arthroscopy can be minimally painful or can be very uncomfortable for months. When we reshape the bone and repair the labrum, it is a good amount of surgery (though less than an open surgery). If we just look or clean up, it is quite benign.

Depending upon the operation done your surgeon will have certain do s and don'ts. For example after a diagnostic scope perhaps you will move right away but after a reconstruction of a ligament or cartilage you will be immobilized. Talk to your surgeon but gentle finger motion, elevation and ice are generally used initially. Follwed by motion and therapy as needed
