Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure that is used to look at, diagnose and treat the joints. It is usually recommended when you have inflammation in the joint. It is also recommended when you might have an injured or damaged joint. The arthroscopy treatment can be done on any of the joints like knee, shoulder, hip, elbow, ankles or wrist.
It is important to choose the right surgeon to perform your arthroscopic surgery. Bhagwan Devi hospitals have the Best Arthroscopic specialist in Hyderabad who provide the best of treatments
The arthroscopy treatment is done on an outpatient basis. The treatment usually completes within a day which means there is no hospital stay required for the same. Anesthesia is administered. However, the amount of anesthesia depends on the part that is being examined. General anesthesia is given or it is administered to the spine of the patient. The doctor might numb the area that he is performing the treatment on.
A thin, pencil-like instrument is inserted into the area through a small incision. A tool called an arthroscope is inserted which has a camera lens and a light that allows seeing the joint. The camera projects an image of the joint onto the screen. The surgeon then fills the joint with sterile fluid so that it is easier to see the joint.
The surgeon then examines the joint to see what the problem is. Once the diagnosis is complete, the doctor suggests if there is any surgery needed. If there is any surgery needed, then the surgeon will insert special tools called portals through small incisions. These portals are then used to cut, shave and anchor the stitches.
Once done, the arthroscope and other instruments are removed and the wound is closed with stitches or special tape. If the doctor decides to opt for the traditional method, then “open” surgery is performed at the same time as your arthroscopic surgery.
There will be pain after the surgery just like any other normal surgery. The doctor will prescribe the medication. This medication needs to be taken at the proper time to prevent any kind of blood clots. Crutches, splint or a sling is used for support as you begin to recover.
Arthroscopy surgery requires very little recovery time. Usually, arthroscopic surgery results in less joint pain and stiffness when compared to the traditional method.
There might be mild scarring due to the incisions made by the surgeon to insert the instruments in that area. You will have small puncture holes where the instruments were inserted.
The day after the surgery, the bandages are removed and small strips are used to cover the incisions. If you have had non-dissolvable stitches, then the doctor will remove them after a week or two.
The site must be kept dry as the wounds require some time to heal. It is advisable to cover the wounds with a plastic sheet in order to avoid them from getting wet.
There are a certain precautions you must take after the surgery. The surgeon might advise you to take time off work and rest for a few days. Certain physical activities like heavy exercises and other such activities must be avoided. The full joint recovery usually takes a few weeks. However, it will take months to get back to normal.
