Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used for diagnosing and treating joint problems. During Arthroscopy, a surgeon makes a small incision and inserts a narrow tube with a fiber optic video camera attached to one end of the tube. The video camera transmits the view inside your joint to a high-definition video monitor.

With Arthroscopy, surgeon get inside view of your joint without making a large incision and can even repair some types of joint damage, with pencil-thin surgical instruments inserted through additional small incisions.
