Arthroscopic Surgery

Our board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons at Orthopaedic Associates in Central Maryland provide leading-edge orthopedic techniques, including arthroscopic surgery for the elbow, hip, knee, and shoulder. Arthroscopic surgery is used to diagnose and repair injuries or conditions in the joints.

About Arthroscopic Surgery

Arthroscopic surgery, also referred to as arthroscopy, uses an arthroscope to guide the orthopedic surgeon during a procedure. An arthroscope is a thin viewing instrument with a lens and a light that enable doctors to see inside a joint without having to open the joint up.

Arthroscopy allows orthopedic surgeons to diagnose and repair conditions at the same time with slender surgical instruments that are inserted through the arthroscope. Arthroscopic procedures only require several very small incisions.
