Benefits of arthroscopy?

  • The scar over the operation site is typically far smaller than if the surgery was done via conservative open methods.
  • This translates to a large cosmetic benefit to a conscious patient.
  • Minimal invasive surgery typically translates into a relatively shorter stay in the hospital.
  • Although many operations used in foot and ankle surgery are day-case anyway, sometimes with “larger” operations hospital stays can still be reduced the arthroscopy way.
  • Recovery and return to work can be significantly reduced with arthroscopic procedures.
  • Results are more predictive and successful with arthroscopic procedures.
