What is arthroscopy?
Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical method where a small camera (arthroscope) and surgical instruments are introduced into the ankle joint through two very small incisions. Arthroscopy can be applied to treat impingement, problems of the cartilage or a loose body, which can arise after an ankle sprain or a broken ankle. Arthroscopy is a very effective treatment method with minimal risk. The advantages of performing an arthroscopy include reduced recovery time, higher probability of surgical success due to less damage to the connective tissue, and less scarring.
