Description

Human body has several important joints that may suffer from injuries or damage over time. Mostly, a few tests help doctors determine the exact cause of the problem and treat it through medication.

Arthroscopy is the process of inserting minor surgical tools to visualize, diagnose and treat joint problems.

The process involves the use of a pencil sized tool that holds a micro camera and lighting system. The tool is inserted in a button hole like incision at the joint area that the surgeon makes and allows the surgeon and other doctors to visualize the internal structure of the joint area on a large screen, wherein they can understand and make out the flaws and injuries that need to be set right.

An injury in joints can be treated through medication. However, in some cases minor surgery is required. In case of a minor surgery, the appropriate tool is inserted and the minor correction is done. This could include trimming of a torn cartilage or addition of surgical cement in a replaced knee joint.

This process is highly important in arthritis diagnosis and treatment. Open surgeries like knee replacement of an osteoarthritis knee can be opted for on a later date after discussion of findings of the arthroscopy. Arthroscopy is also widely used in back pain treatment, although the technique of combining arthroscopy with open surgery is not very well defined.

Post-Procedure
  • The process is not time consuming and is usually completed within one or two hours.
  • All patients are required to have normal breathing and pulse rate before being shifted to the recovery ward as the anesthetic administered is either local, general or a spinal.
  • After the patient is shifted to a recovery ward, he/she is observed for swelling or any secondary reaction after the surgery.
  • There is no need for pain killers at any stage since most arthroscopic procedures help in reducing or diagnosing the cause of pain and does not trigger new pain unless there is a complication.
  • Excessive pain must be reported to the doctor immediately.
  • The findings of the process can be discussed and the patient can opt for a bigger open surgery on a later date or the family may allow it while under the same anesthesia.
  • Post-op care for arthroscopy is mainly geared towards healing of the incisions and recovery of normal movement in the joint area.
  • The doctor prescribes certain measures to allow quick healing of the incisions followed by a few exercises to allow normal activity in the treated joint. For the joint to heal, he may prescribe a few sessions with the physiotherapist.
  • For the incisions, he prescribes the right dressing medication. The doctor also schedules follow-ups to check the rate of healing and remove sutures if any.
More Info

Will I need home-care services?

Home care services are not needed unless a thorough open surgery has been conducted along with the arthroscopy. When only arthroscopy has been conducted, patients can resume normal activities within a few days and do not experience any joint related pain. However, for the joint to become completely normal, it may take several weeks. Careful movement of the joint area and trained physiotherapy help in the process. You can get home care services for dressing the puncture incisions, although it is not important unless in specific occasions.

Will my pain completely subside?

The process of arthroscopy does not cause any new pain at the site of puncture or treatment. Instead, in most cases it reduces the pain that has been caused by defect in the joint area. The corrective surgeries help reduce the pain that the patient chronically suffers from. Once the joint completely heals, the pain is expected to subside entirely.
