Incisionless Surgery Needle Arthroscopy Miami
Incisionless Surgery Needle Arthroscopy
Needle arthroscopy, also known as “nano-arthroscopy” or “micro-arthroscopy,” is a revolutionary minimally invasive surgical technique used to diagnose and treat joint problems. This type of arthroscopy is performed using a small needle-like instrument, which is inserted into the joint through a tiny incision. Orthopedic surgeons may use needle arthroscopy to visualize and assess the joint, take tissue samples for analysis, and perform surgical procedures. The technique is commonly used to diagnose and treat conditions such as osteoarthritis, meniscal tears, ACL tears, rotator cuff tears, and many other orthopedic conditions.
Advantages Of Needle Arthroscopy Surgery Miami
One of the main advantages of needle arthroscopy is its minimally invasive nature. Because the incision required is so small and the instruments used are tiny (often less than a millimeter in diameter) and are designed to work in tight spaces without damaging healthy tissue, there is less damage to the surrounding tissues and less risk of complications. In addition, the procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis, and in an in-office setting with minimal downtime for the patient therefore allowing patients to return to routine activities almost immediately and require minimal physical therapy. In many cases, it requires no sedation, no general anesthesia, and no narcotics. Another advantage of needle arthroscopy is its accuracy. The small size of the needle and miniaturized instruments allows for a high degree of precision, which is especially important when performing delicate surgical procedures. For example, needle arthroscopy can be used to repair tears in the meniscus, reconstructed ACL tears, repair rotator cuff tears, and perform most orthopedic sports medicine surgical procedures.
