Arthroscopy and sports medicine offer comprehensive assessment and management of a wide gamut of sports-related injuries. Arthroscopy is an advanced technique that allows doctors to assess and treat certain joint problems using a minimally invasive approach, with the help of a precise imaging modality known as an arthroscope. Sports medicine deals with the effective management of orthopaedic injuries in athletes.
What is Arthroscopy?
Arthroscopy is an advanced orthopaedic intervention that has revolutionised the diagnosis and treatment of various orthopaedic conditions, using a minimally invasive approach. The procedure involves the use of a special device known as an Arthroscope, which has a narrow tube fitted with a fibre optic camera on one of its ends. The tube is inserted inside the patient's body via a tiny incision and guided to assess the problem with the help of live images that are generated on a high-definition screen. In some cases, doctors may even treat the condition using the same approach, with the help of special surgical tools.
Who needs Arthroscopy?
Arthroscopy is most commonly used in sports medicine to ensure the robust recovery of players. However, it can also be used for treating patients suffering from a variety of other conditions related to the following:
