In brief: Surgery w/ a camera

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.

In brief: Camera insertion

An arthroscopy is a surgical procedure in which a small camera is inserted into a joint.
The most common is the knee, although it is done with shoulder, elbow, wrist, tm joint, hip, and ankle joint. This allows for complete evaluation and also treatment of many condiitons. Although it is still major surgery, it allows a must faster recuperation than traditional open surgery.
