Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure during which the internal structure of a joint is examined for diagnosis and treatment of problems inside the joint. In arthroscopic examination, a small incision is made in the patient’s skin through which pencil-sized instruments that have a small lens and lighting system (arthroscope) are passed.
Joints are formed by the ends of two or more bones connected by tissue called cartilage. Healthy cartilage serves as a protective cushion, allowing smooth and low-friction movement of the joint. If the cartilage becomes damaged by disease or injury, the tissues around the joint become inflamed, causing pain. With time, the cartilage wears away, allowing the rough edges of bone to rub against each other, causing more pain.
Sports injuries occur when playing indoor or outdoor sports or while exercising. They can result from accidents, inadequate training, improper use of protective devices, or insufficient stretching or warm-up exercises. The most common sports injuries are sprains and strains, fractures and dislocations.
Orthopedic care involves diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation and prevention of injuries and diseases of musculoskeletal system of the body. The musculoskeletal system is made up of muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones and nerves that provide support and stability, and helps in movement of the body parts. Orthopedic treatments may include both non-surgical and surgical methods.
Shoulder surgery may be performed to treat injuries or conditions that do not respond to conservative treatment. It may be performed through an open incision or arthroscopic surgery using keyhole incisions. Common shoulder procedures include rotator cuff repair, shoulder labrum reconstruction, Bankart repair, SLAP repair and shoulder joint replacement.
Surgery may be performed to treat knee injuries or conditions that do not respond to conservative treatment. Arthroscopic surgery is used to carry out most knee procedures. Common knee procedures include ACL reconstruction, meniscal surgery, patellar tendon repair, cartilage restoration, knee realignment (osteotomy) and knee replacement surgery.
A bone fracture is a medical condition in which a bone is cracked or broken. It is a break in the continuity of the bone. While many fractures are the result of high force impact or stress, bone fracture can also occur because of certain medical conditions that weaken the bones, such as osteoporosis.
