ARTHROSCOPY SERVICES AT TTSH
Arthroscopy literally means visualizing the joint (
arthros
: joint,
scope
: to see).In essence, artroscopy involves introduction o a thin telescope into the joint through small openings in the skincalled portals, and directly visualizing the interior o the joint on a screen.In hand surgery arthroscopy, particularly that o the wrist has become a valuable and useul tool or the surgeonover past two decades. It allows diagnosis o pathologies within the joint and also allows the surgeon to carry outsome therapeutic procedures (also reerred to as minimally invasive surgery), without the need or a large openprocedure, enhancing patient comort and shortening the recovery time. This procedure is commonly used in ligament injuries o the wrist and establishing the diagnosis in chronicwrist pain.Recently, with development o smaller scopes arthroscopy has also been extended to smaller joints in the thumband fngers.
