Keyhole surgery for Joint problems

 

Keyhole surgery of joints, also known as Arthroscopy, is a well established technique of surgery on various joints of the body. I perform arthroscopy of knee, ankle and hip. Knee and ankle joints are commonly injured in sports injuries. Arthritis is also common in these joints. Majority of these conditions can be treated by keyhole surgery alone. It is generally carried out as a day care procedure - i.e a patient is admitted for few hours only. Very rarely overnight admission in to hospital is necessary. Keyhole procedures help in faster recovery and return to work.
