Arthroscopy Treatment in Bangalore


Arthroscopy Treatment in Bangalore

Arthroscopy Treatment in Bangalore involves using an arthroscope to treat and address joint problems. An arthroscope and other specialised instruments are inserted through the incision. A camera is attached to the arthroscope, which displays the insides on a screen. This guides the surgeon's movements. Surgical arthroscopy is used to remove loose cartilage to repair torn ligaments. It may not be suitable for all joint problems. Some joint issues may require open surgery for a more comprehensive treatment.

Arthroscopy of the knee joint is a very common procedure. However, arthroscopy addresses many joint issues in the knee, shoulder, elbow, ankle, hip, and wrist. It is widely used for diagnosing and treating joint injuries and diseases. For example, hip arthroscopy is done for labral tears, hip impingement, and cartilage issues, and ankle arthroscopy is performed to correct bone spurs, arthritis, and soft tissue injuries.

At Manipal Hospitals Millers Road, Bangalore, we have the best arthroscopic surgeons in Bangalore who use small incisions and target only the damaged areas, significantly lowering the risk of infection and future arthritis as compared to traditional open surgery.
