An arthroscopy is a surgical procedure that helps diagnose and treat knee, hip or shoulder problems such as arthritis. The procedure requires examining the joint by using an arthroscope.
1. Shoulder Arthroscopy
2. Knee Arthroscopy
3. Hip Arthroscopy
Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure on a joint in which an examination and sometimes treatment of damage is performed using an arthroscope, an endoscope that is inserted into the joint through a small ( KEY HOLE incision
ACL injuries are more common among women than men.
One of the most common ways people hurt their knees is by injuring their ACL (anterior cruciate ligament).The ACL is a band in the knee that connects the thigh bone (femur) to the shinbone (tibia). It helps stabilize the knee and controls rotation of the leg.
Stretching or tearing of ACL is often painful, and can make it hard to walk or put pressure on the injured leg.
Symptoms are: Pain, Swelling, Trouble Walking, Less range of motion
PCL Tear The PCL (posterior cruciate ligament) is the strongest ligament, or band of tissue, in your knee. It stretches across the back of your knee. It connects your shinbone to your thigh bone and keeps your knee stable. Many knee injuries are related to sports. But a PCL injury is more likely to happen during car accidents. Most people who damage their PCL feel pain and have swelling. Your knee may feel stiff and sore. It might also feel unstable. Or the joint may feel loose, as though it can’t support your weight.
Meniscal Tear Like a lot of knee injuries, a meniscus tear can be painful and debilitating. Unfortunately, it's quite common. Meniscal tear is one of the most frequently occurring cartilage injuries of the knee. It's a piece of cartilage in your knee that cushions and stabilizes the joint. It protects the bones from wear and tear. But all it takes is a good twist of the knee to tear the meniscus. Meniscus tears are common in contact sports like football, volleyball and soccer. This happens when a person suddenly changes direction while running, and often occur at the same time as other knee injuries, like an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury.
SHOULDER Arthroscopic stabilisation shoulder dislocation Shoulder Impingement Shoulder impingement syndrome is a common cause of shoulder pain. It occurs when there is impingement of tendons in the shoulder. Examples include: painting, lifting, swimming, tennis, and other overhead sports. Over time, impingement syndrome can lead to inflammation of the rotator cuff tendons (tendinitis) and bursa (bursitis). If not treated appropriately, the rotator cuff tendons can start to thin and tear.
Frozen Shoulder Frozen shoulder is a condition that affects your shoulder joint. It usually involves pain and stiffness that develops gradually and gets worse with time.
Rotator Cuff repair A rotator cuff tear is a common injury, especially in sports like baseball or tennis, or in jobs like painting or cleaning windows. It usually happens over time from normal wear and tear, or if you repeat the same arm motion over and over. But it also can happen suddenly if you fall on your arm or lift something heavy. There are two kinds of rotator cuff tears. A partial tear is when the tendon that protects the top of your shoulder is frayed or damaged. The other is a complete tear. That’s the one that goes all the way through the tendon or pulls the tendon off the bone.
