Arthroscopy comes from a Greek word Artho & Scopien which literally mean to look into the joint. Arthroscopy is a procedure by which various joints in the body (Knee, Shoulder, Ankle, Hip & Wrist) can be inspected and treatment given by a small pencil shaped instrument called arthroscope (Telescope). This is a keyhole incision surgery where two single stitch incisions (Pic.1). are usually enough to treat any problem which would have normally required a large incision ( Pic.2). This has been made possible by technological advancement in Bio-engineering field. The small instruments (biters, shaver, probes, scissors etc.) also measuring 2 to 5 millimetres, are placed into the joint through separate incisions to remove torn cartilage, trim torn structures, or do other procedures.
