A small incision is made on patient’s skin and then inserts pen-sized instruments that contain a camera to magnify and visualize the structures inside the joint.


Arthroscopy is used to confirm the diagnosis made through history, physical examination and Radiological investigations (X rays & MRI), Once diagnosis is confirmed treatment can also be done through arthroscopy.
