Arthroscopic knee surgery is one of the most common forms of orthopedic surgeries. For this surgery, small incisions are made in the knee. This allows the doctor to insert a camera to be able to fully look at the knee joint and also make small repairs without a big incision.
Other procedures that are commonly preformed are surgeries involving the shoulder. These include minimally invasive arthroscopic debridement which includes the removal of irritates tissues, scar tissue and bone spurs that are causing the patient pain. They also include more severe injuries like a rotator cuff tear. This surgery is also minimally invasive with small incisions. Small anchors and thread are put into the bone and the tissue is then tied back down to the bone where it is supposed to be.
