Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive technique that the team at Garden State Pain Control uses to diagnose and treat problems inside your joint. Arthroscopy is a Greek word that literally translates as, “to look within the joint.”
This procedure uses a thin, flexible instrument called an arthroscope. The end of the arthroscope has a light and camera lens on it, which projects images of the inside of your joint onto a screen.
Arthroscopy allows your surgeon to visually examine the structures of your joint without damaging healthy tissues with a large incision. They can accurately diagnose your condition and repair damage through tiny incisions the size of a buttonhole.

Compared to open surgery, arthroscopy offers numerous benefits, including:
