Arthroscopy is an advanced universal method and minimally invasive surgical intervention, which is carried out for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. The essence of arthroscopy is as follows: an orthopedic surgeon penetrates directly into the joint with the help of a special device, an arthroscope. For this purpose, several micro incisions are made on the surface of the skin, through which a doctor gains access to the joint.

The procedure allows visualizing the structure of the joint from the inside and determining presence and extent of the pathology, removing or replacing damaged tissues, as well as refixing detached intraarticular structures. This is the most advanced technology for today. It is used for the diagnosis and treatment of joints and allows for a rapid healing and recovery of a patient after the intervention.
