Upstate Orthopedics

Arthroscopy

At Upstate Orthopedics, many of our surgeons use arthroscopy to accurately diagnose and repair injuries and problems affecting the joints. Arthroscopy has become one of the most widely used surgical treatments for joint problems and soft tissue injuries.

Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure performed in our ambulatory surgery center. Your surgeon will use a scope with a high-definition camera attached to look inside your joint. Tiny surgical tools can also be attached to the scope to immediately repair any damage the surgeon finds. The scope, camera, and tools are inserted through two or three small incisions.

Compared to open surgery, the benefits of arthroscopy include:

  • Smaller incisions
  • Less pain and bleeding
  • Less risk of infection
  • Shorter recovery times
  • Minimal or no scarring

Our orthopedic surgeons can perform arthroscopic surgery on practically any joint in the body:
