In brief: Not difficult
Wrist arthroscopy is not difficult for someone who specializes in hand surgery.
Ask the physician about their specialty and how many wrist scopes a year they do.

In brief: Straight forward
The wrist is a small joint, which requires special equipment and experience to obtain adequate visualization.
Most of the time, the procedure consists of removal of inflammed and damaged tissue. Occasionally, a repair of the triangular fibrocartilage complex is done arthroscopically. See a board certified orthopaedic hand surgeon for further evaluation and treatment.

In brief: Easy
In experienced hands it is easy.
Do no be afraid to ask you surgeon how many wrist scope he/she does a year. You want someone who performs at least one a month.
