Arthroscopy in Mumbai

(A Speciality Clinic for Knee, Joint and Shoulder Injuries)

Arthroscopy (also called arthroscopic surgery) is a minimally invasive surgical procedure in which an examination and sometimes treatment of damage of the interior of a joint is performed using an arthroscope, a type of endoscope that is inserted into the joint through a small incision.

In Arthroscopy, the surgeon makes small keyhole incisions on the knee through which he introduces pen sized instrument known as arthroscope. This is connected by optic fibres to a camera which in turn transmits this on the TV screen. The image on the TV helps the surgeon to correctly diagnose the knee condition. He can also introduce small instruments through other small keyholes to treat the condition.


Arthroscopic procedures can be performed either to evaluate or to treat many orthopaedic conditions including torn floating cartilage, torn surface cartilage, ACL reconstruction, and trimming damaged cartilage.

Arthroscopy can be used to diagnose and treat many of these problems:

  • Torn meniscal cartilage.
  • Loose fragments of bone or cartilage.
  • Damaged joint surfaces or softening of the articular cartilage known as chondromalacia.
  • Inflammation of the synovial membrane, such as rheumatoid or gouty arthritis.
  • Abnormal alignment or instability of the kneecap.
  • Torn ligaments including the anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments.

By providing a clear picture of the knee, arthroscopy can also help the orthopaedic surgeon decide whether other types of reconstructive surgery would be beneficial.
