Surgical Procedures

Arthroscopy is a common surgical procedure in which a joint (arthro-) is viewed (-scopy) using a small camera.

Arthroscopy gives the doctors a clear view of the inside of the injured joint. This helps them to diagnose and treat joint problems. It also helps patients recover quickly since it utilizes smaller incisions.

With Seneca Healthcare District’s Ortho Program, an arthroscopy procedure can be performed on the following joints:

  • Ankle
  • Shoulder
  • Knee
  • Wrist
  • Hip
