Arthroscopy is a procedure for diagnosing and treating joint problems. A surgeon inserts a narrow tube attached to a fiber-optic video camera through a small incision.
Knee Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure used to view the knee joint without making a large incision (cut) through the skin and other soft tissues with the help of a small camera called an arthroscope. The camera displays pictures on a video monitor, and your surgeon uses these images to guide miniature surgical instruments.
Arthroscopy is used to diagnose and treat a wide range of knee problems.
Knee arthroscopy may relieve painful symptoms of many problems that damage the cartilage surfaces and other soft tissues surrounding the joint.
Common arthroscopic procedures for the knee include:
Removal or repair of a torn meniscus
Reconstruction of a torn anterior cruciate ligament
Removal of inflamed synovial tissue
Trimming of damaged articular cartilage
Removal of loose fragments of bone or cartilage
Treatment of patella (kneecap) problems
Treatment of knee sepsis (infection)
Hip arthroscopy relieve painful symptoms of many problems that damage the labrum, articular cartilage, or other soft tissues surrounding the joint.
It is a surgical procedure that allows doctors to view the hip joint without making a large incision (cut) through the skin and other soft tissues. In this procedure, a small camera is inserted called an arthroscope into the hip joint and the camera displays pictures on a video monitor which surgeon uses these images to guide miniature surgical instruments.
A range of procedures can be done, depending on the needs of the patient like the following :
Smooth off torn cartilage or repair it
Trim bone spurs caused by FAI
Remove inflamed synovial tissue
Gold Knee Replacement
One of the main development of modern manufacturing technologies for new orthopaedic implants is to improve their surfaces to avoaid allergic reactions and wear debris caused by the articulating components. This knee implant system is a ray of hope for young and old patients to enjoy an active lifestyle.
Benefits of the treatment
- Outstanding biocompatibility
- Allergic preventive
- Superior surface hardness
- Low friction articulation
- Long term chemical stability
- Avoiding inflammation and endoprosthetic loosening
- Extreme adhesive strength
