Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure that consists in inserting a video camera into a joint or in the area surrounding it to carry out an exploration and reparation without opening it up.
This procedure has several advantages:
- reduced surgical risk:this procedure reduces infectious risk, operative duration and healing complications;
- shortened post-operative convalescence and immobilization, faster resumption of normal activity;
- improved efficacy of surgery through preserved tissue vascularisation and better technical quality of repair.
Arthroscopy is thus perfectly suited to sports surgery.
