Actually the term is arthroscopic surgery.

In brief: Orthopedic camera

Scopic refers to the use of cameras to help reach into small spaces.
And ortho means orthopedic surgery otherwise known as bone and joint surgeons. For examples arthroscopic knee surgery is when surgery is performed on the different cartilage structures within the knee using 2-3 small holes and cameras are inserted with devices to help fix the problem. This can be applied to many of the joints.
