NORCROSS, GA, January 02, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Atlanta orthopedic surgeons OrthoAtlanta would like to discuss the benefits of minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery for both minor repairs on your joints and as a diagnostic tool to determine the extent of damages.
Unlike traditional open surgery, arthroscopy does not require that your joint be fully opened up. Instead, a very small incision is made into which the surgeon places an arthroscope (a tool specially designed to examine the insides of joints). From here, the doctor can examine damages that would otherwise be difficult or impossible to assess, or even treat minor injuries, such as a tear in the meniscus.
This type of surgery is ideal in many situations, and particularly for athletes, because it requires very little recovery time. It is also safer than most surgeries because the chances of damage to your connective tissues occurring are low, and preferable to many because of the very minimal scarring.
"Unfortunately, situations exist where the best diagnosis will require a look inside the affected joint," explains Dr. Brian Morgan, an Atlanta orthopedic surgeon with OrthoAtlanta specializing in arthroscopic surgery. "Luckily, with arthroscopic surgery you simply don't get the downsides that go along with a traditional surgery."
