Arthroscopic surgery Q & A
What is diagnostic arthroscopy?
Arthroscopy started as a diagnostic procedure, but it’s now evolved into a viable alternative to many types of open surgery. Some of the many procedures that Dr. Elman may perform arthroscopically are:
- Shoulder rotator cuff repair
- Labral surgery
- Meniscus surgery
- Ligament repair
- Ligament reconstruction
- Inflamed synovium (inner joint lining) removal
- Loose body removal
In some cases, Dr. Elman can diagnose and repair the problem during the same arthroscopic procedure.
