Understanding Arthroscopic Surgery / Repair and the Procedure


Arthroscopic surgery is a procedure that uses small incisions and an arthroscope—a specialized camera—to diagnose and treat various joint issues, such as arthritis, fractures, or ligament tears in the knee, ankle or shoulder with minimal disruption to surrounding tissues.


This advanced surgical method not only allows your doctor to get a detailed look inside your joint but also provides the means to repair damage such as tears in the ligaments or other tissue, leading to improved joint function and pain relief.


The arthroscope enhances visibility inside the joint, ensuring that repairs are carried out with high precision, which can lead to more effective outcomes and potentially quicker recovery times compared to traditional open surgery.


Tailored Preparation


Expertise Meets Compassion


Your Path to Healing

Before your scheduled surgery, you'll have an in-depth discussion with your physician about the procedure. Your doctor will then work with RASC to plan your surgery, ensuring that our facilities are prepared to meet your specific needs.

We'll provide instructions on how to prepare, including fasting guidelines and any medication adjustments. Also, you'll need to arrange for someone to drive you home and stay with you overnight after the procedure.

On the day of your arthroscopic surgery, you'll be in the trusted hands of your physician, assisted by our attentive RASC team. You'll receive anesthesia to ensure you're comfortable and pain-free during the surgery.

The procedure typically takes about an hour, depending on the complexity of the repair needed. Our state-of-the-art equipment allows for a precise and effective procedure, maximizing the potential for an excellent outcome.

Post-procedure, you'll recover under the watchful eye of our staff before being discharged to continue healing at home. We'll provide you with detailed aftercare instructions, including pain management, care for your incisions, and information on when you can resume activities. Physical therapy may be recommended as part of your recovery plan to restore strength and range of motion.
