Arthroscopic Surgery

Arthroscopic Surgery

Norton Orthopedic Care is dedicated to helping you return to your normal activities as soon as possible following an injury. That’s why we specialize in minimally invasive treatment approaches like arthroscopic surgery to treat injuries of the shoulder, elbow and knee. Our highly experienced and well-trained surgeons use some of the newest, most innovative surgical procedures and rehabilitative strategies designed to help you return to—and perhaps even surpass—your level of activity prior to your injury.

About Arthroscopic Surgery

During arthroscopy, Norton orthopedic surgeons use a pencil-size instrument to look inside a joint in order to diagnose and treat a joint condition. The arthroscope, a fiber optic camera, is so slim that it can be inserted into the joint through one or more tiny “keyhole” incisions through the skin.

Originally, arthroscopy was simply a diagnostic tool for planning standard open surgery. However, with development of better instrumentation and surgical techniques, many joint conditions now can be treated arthroscopically:

  • ACL tears
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Chondromalacia (wearing or injuryof knee cartilage cushion)
  • Loose bone fragments and/or cartilage in the knee, shoulder, elbow, ankle or wrist
  • Recurrent shoulder dislocations
  • Rotator cuff tendon tears
  • Shoulder impingement syndrome
  • Meniscal tears

Like with all minimally invasive surgeries, it is important to get a thorough evaluation from your surgeon. Your surgeon will discuss the risks and benefits involved with the procedure.
