What is Arthroscopy?
Arthroscopy is a minimally-invasive or sutureless surgical procedure by which a thin tube is passed into the joint and the internal structures are seen on a monitor.

Why is Arthroscopy done?
Surgery can either be performed for diagnosis - to assess if there are any injuries in the joint Or can be performed as a therapeutic measure – to repair or reconstruct an injury to a ligament or cartilage in the joint.

What are the joints that can be treated by arthroscopy?
Joints that can be treated by this sutureless technique are
:- Knee
:- Shoulder
:- Elbow
:- Wrist
:- Ankle
:- Hip

What are the injuries that can be treated by arthroscopy?
Arthroscopy can be used:
:- To repair/ reconstruct ligament injuries of the knee like ACL, MCL, MPFL
:- To repair shoulder ligaments to prevent repeated shoulder dislocations – arthroscopic Bankart repair
:- To repair tear of other ligaments of the shoulder – arthroscopic rotator cuff repair
:- To repair Triangular Fibro Cartilaginous Complex (TFCC) tear in the wrist
:- To repair/ reconstruct cartilage defects in the knee/ ankle/ shoulder/ elbow/ wrist/ hip
:- To treat chronic hip pain due to Femoro-Acetabular Impingement (FAI)

Will I have an ugly scar after the surgery?
Since the surgery is done through small key-holes and in a sutureless technique, the scar is mostly invisible.
How many days should you be admitted in hospital after the procedure?
Arthroscopy is usually a day-care procedure. That means you could get admitted in the morning, undergo the surgery and get discharged in the evening. At times, you could have an overnight stay in the hospital.

What are the precautions before surgery?
You should not eat anything after night the previous day of the surgery.
.Knee Arthroscopic surgery is a procedure performed through small incisions in the skin to repair injuries to tissues such as ligaments, cartilage, or bone within the knee joint area. The surgery is conducted with the aid of an arthroscope, which is a very small instrument guided by a lighted scope attached to a television monitor. Other instruments are inserted through three incisions around the knee. Arthroscopic surgeries range from minor procedures such as flushing or smoothing out bone surfaces or tissue fragments (lavage and debridement ) associated with osteoarthritis, to the realignment of a dislocated knee and ligament grafting surgeries. The range of surgeries represents very different procedures, risks, and aftercare requirements.

While the clear advantages of arthrocopic surgery lie in surgery with less anesthetic, less cutting, and less recovery time, this surgery nonetheless requires a very thorough examination of the causes of knee injury or pain prior to a decision for surgery.

All sports related problems with physiotherapy and rehabilization backup
Sports injuries are injuries that occur to athletes participating in sporting events. In many cases, these types of injuries are due to overuse of a part of the body when participating in a certain activity. For example, runner’s knee is a painful condition generally associated with running, while tennis elbow is a form of repetitive stress injury at the elbow, although it does not often occur with tennis players. Other types of injuries can be caused by a hard contact with something. This can often cause a broken bone or torn ligament or tendon

Injuries are a common occurrence in professional sports and most teams have a staff of Athletic Trainers and close connections to the medical community. Controversy has arisen at times when teams have made decisions that could threaten a players long-term health for short term gain.
