Arthroscopy is a procedure used by orthopedic surgeons to inspect, diagnose and repair joints. Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure on a joint in which doctors use an arthroscope, an endoscope, and make a small incision on joints. The benefit of traditional open surgery is that the joint does not have to be opened up fully. In knee arthroscopy, doctors make only two small incisions one for the arthroscope and the second for the surgical instruments. This procedure reduces recovery time and increases the chances of success due to less stress on connective tissue. It is especially used for professional athletes, who frequently injure knee joints and require fast healing. It also leaves fewer scars, because of the smaller incisions. Irrigation fluid is used to expand the joint and make a surgical space. The surgical instruments are smaller than traditional instruments. Surgeons can see joints through a video monitor and can diagnose and repair torn joint tissue.

Some of the advantages of an arthroscopy compared with traditional open surgery include ​

What are the joint conditions that can be diagnosed with Arthroscopy?

Some of the most common conditions found during arthroscopy are:

  • The inflamed lining of the knee, shoulder, elbow, wrist, or ankle.
  • Acute and Chronic injury
  • Rotator cuff tendon tears, impingement syndrome in the shoulder.
  • Meniscal tears, chondromalacia, and anterior cruciate ligament tears with instability.

Following are the three most commonly
performed Arthroscopic Surgeries:

Shoulder Arthroscopy is a procedure in which an Orthopaedic Surgeon examines or treats problems related to the shoulder and tissues around the shoulder. Therefore, this surgical procedure can be both diagnostic and corrective. In this surgery, the patient will be under regional or general anesthesia. The Doctor will make a small incision into the shoulder area and inserts the tiny camera known as an Arthroscope.

The Arthroscope helps the Surgeon see different shoulder parts using the scope and perform other minor disciplinary procedures if necessary.

  • Hip Arthroscopy

Hip Arthroscopy, sometimes called a “Hip Scope,” is a minimally invasive procedure in which an Orthopaedic Surgeon uses an Arthroscope to examine the Hip Joint.

This procedure allows the Surgeon to diagnose the reason for hip pain or other problems. The Orthopaedic Surgeon makes small incisions to perform Arthroscopic Surgery, and various Arthroscopic Needles, Scalpels, or other Surgical tools can be used.

  • Knee Arthroscopy

Knee Arthroscopy is a procedure that helps the Orthopaedic Surgeon views the Knee Joint without making large incisions. Knee Arthroscopy is used to diagnose and treat Knee-related problems.

During Knee Arthroscopy, the Surgeon inserts a tiny camera into your Knee Joint.

The camera show pictures on a monitor, which helps the surgeon to guide their surgical instruments.

The Arthroscope and Surgical instruments are very small. Your Surgeon can use tiny incisions rather than making a larger incision while performing the surgery. This results in less pain for patients.

Potential Risks

Arthroscopic Surgery is generally considered safe, but complications may arise while performing the surgery. Arthroscopy is a way of visualizing joints. The tissues and nerves may get harmed in the surgery because the instruments are placed within the joint space. However, Doctor’s experience plays a vital role in eliminating the risk of Traditional Open Surgery. Our Ortho Specialist Dr.S.S. Dhingra is the Best Arthroscopy Surgeon in Jalandhar.

Recovery After Arthroscopy ?

Immediately after surgery, patients can feel sleepy, especially if a general anesthetic or sedation has been used. Medications are given to control pain if needed. If a local anesthetic has been used, then you feel no pain at all after the procedure. If a spinal or regional anesthetic has been used, then it can cause numbness and weakness that gradually resolves before the patient is sent home. For many days after arthroscopy, patients should take plenty of rest and elevate the joint while applying ice packs to reduce pain and swelling. After surgery, the doctor suggests some exercises that help in strengthening  the muscles and prevents scarring of soft tissues. The main aim is to recover stability, range of motion, and strength of the joints rapidly and safely while preventing the build-up of scar tissue. This  plays an important part in the recovery process  for the best outcome of this procedure. Arthroscopy has become an essential  tool for orthopedic surgery and its role will continue to expand as further improvement in arthroscopes and arthroscopic instruments continue.


Arthroscopic surgery can be performed for any synovial joint and, as time goes by, more and more joints are being treated with arthroscopic surgery. The most common types of arthroscopy are:

  • Knee Arthroscopy.
  • Shoulder Arthroscopy.
  • Hip Arthroscopy.
  • Ankle Arthroscopy.
  • Elbow Arthroscopy.
  • Wrist Arthroscopy.

The conditions that can be treated with Arthroscopy surgery are:

  • Damaged or torn cartilage.
  • Loose bone fragments.
  • Joint Infections.
  • Joint linings that are inflamed.
  • Injuries within joints.
  • Torn ligaments.

You may shower 48 hours post-surgery and make sure that your incisions are wet. Do not immerse yourself in a pool or tub for 7 to 10 days to prevent excessive scarring and the risk of contracting an infection. Keep an Ice Pack on at all times, and exchange every hour throughout your day. Iceingis essential to reduce pain and swelling and to improve mobility.

Do not eat or drink anything after midnight the night before the procedure. Fasting can help reduce the nausea that anesthesia can cause. If your doctor tells you that it’s okay to take a specific medication on the day of surgery, you can take it with very less water.

The cost of arthroscopic surgeries in India can range between a few thousand rupees to 2-3 lakh rupees, which depends on many factors like the joint on which surgery is performed as well as the health status of the patient etc.

Arthroscopy procedures are safe and effective. They aid healthcare providers in diagnosing and treat a variety of injuries, without the need for extensive incisions. Minimally invasive techniques typically require less time to recover than conventional (open) surgical procedures.
