Innovative, Minimally Invasive Treatments at EmergeOrtho
EmergeOrtho’s skilled team of orthopedists routinely treat patients experiencing severe and debilitating pain from knee issues. Our joint specialists utilize the latest advancements, such as minimally invasive surgery and computer-aided navigation, to reduce recovery times. Arthroscopic surgery involves the use of small instruments and cameras. This enables us to visualize, diagnose, and treat problems within the joints.
During the procedure, two or more small incisions are made around the joint being treated. The surgeon inserts an instrument called an arthroscope into the joint. The arthroscope contains a fiber optic light source and small video camera that allows the surgeon to view the joint on a monitor. This view aids the surgeon in the diagnosis and repair of the problem. Other instruments may be inserted to help view or repair the tissues inside the joint.
