Arthroscopy refers to joint surgeries to help with mobility issues. Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a small scope to perform the surgery through a small incision.
This is advantageous to normal open surgeries because it promotes faster patient recovery, including less pain. It also reduces swelling while giving surgeons improved access to the areas of surgery.
Animals with mobility issues in the shoulders and hips can benefit from arthroscopic surgery. Since it is a minimally invasive procedure, even older animals can undergo this surgery.
Our surgeons have received extensive training that is required to perform arthroscopic procedures.
