Arthroscopy is a procedure that Orthopedic surgeons use to inspect, diagnose, and repair problems inside a joint.

Arthroscope and surgical instruments are thin, your surgeon can use very small incisions (cuts), rather than the larger incision needed for open surgery. This results in less pain for patients, less joint stiffness, and often shortens the time it takes to recover and return to favorite activities.


The elbow is a complex joint formed by the joining of three bones:

1. The humerus (upper arm bone)

2. The ulna (forearm bone on the pinky finger side)

3. The radius (forearm bone on the thumb side)

The Elbow Joint is surrounded by muscles on the front and back sides. In addition, the three major nerves that cross the elbow joint are located close to the joint surfaces and capsule and must be protected during arthroscopic surgery.

Common arthroscopic procedures include:

1. Treatment of tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis)

2. Removal of loose bodies (loose cartilage and bone fragments)

3. Release of scar tissue to improve range of motion

4. Treatment of osteoarthritis (wear and tear arthritis)

5. Treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (inflammatory arthritis)

6. Treatment of osteochondritis dissecans (activity related damage to the capitellum portion of the humerus seen in throwers or gymnasts)
