ARTHROSCOPY

Written by

Inspection of the interior of a joint (usually the knee) to diagnose any disorder there. The instrument used is a type of ENDOSCOPE called an ARTHROSCOPE. The knee is often affected by conditions that are not easy to diagnose and are not revealed by X-ray examination. Surgery can be performed using arthroscopy and this reduces the time a patient has to be in hospital.
