Total Joint Replacement
Physical Rehabilitation Center
Fiber optic technology now allows examination of the joint through miniature "button hole" sized incisions. Patients have less pain and more rapid recovery than similar procedures performed through larger incisions. In addition, better visualization of the joint can be achieved by displaying the small interior structures on a television screen. As a result, increasing large and complex procedures can be performed arthroscopically. Our orthopedic surgeons are experts in arthroscopic techniques. The joints typically treated with arthroscopic techniques include the knee, shoulder, elbow, wrist, and ankle.
